The mother of Sophie Lancaster says she believes there is “no justice” as one of her daughter’s killers had his minimum jail term cut.

Ryan Herbert, then 16, was one of two men handed life sentences for murdering Sophie, 20, who died of her injuries after being savagely beaten along with her boyfriend in a park in Lancashire in 2007.

In a crime that shook the nation Sophie and boyfriend Rob Maltby were targeted by “feral thugs” because they were members of the goth subculture and “looked and dressed differently.”
