A JUDGE warned that the streets cannot be ruled by the “law of the jungle” as he jailed a father and son over a violent vigilante attack.

Kevin Tiernan, 44, and his sons Craig, 22, and Daniel, 19, “took the law into their own hands” and left Kevin Quarmby with wounds to his head in a bloody street attack in Hetton, following a feud between their two families.

Judge John Evans said police must be called in to deal with complaints in communities and warned that vigilanteism could result in loss of life.
