Two men have been jailed for an arson attack on a mosque in Gloucester.
Petrol was poured around the door of the Masjid-E-Noor mosque on Ryecroft Street and set on fire in June.
Ashley Juggins, 20, and Clive Ceronne, 37, previously admitted arson with reckless endangerment to life.
Juggins, of Brooklyn Road, Cheltenham was sentenced to 42 months in prison, while Ceronne, of Gloucester was jailed for 54 months at Gloucester Crown Court.
The court was told the damage to the mosque had been minimal but that was due “more [to] luck than judgement”.
The attack happened days after an open day was held at the mosque to welcome local people.
