Hussain drove from his home in South Wales to carry out the attack.  

Hussain went on trial and was found guilty of attempt murder on 1 February.  

Today (Monday) at Bradford Crown Court he was jailed for life with a minimum term of 12 years and 345 days.

“This was a horrific and sustained attack and the victim is very lucky to be alive today.  

“Hussain drove hundreds of miles to carry out the attack and had previously threatened the victim over a number of years.  

“I hope today’s lengthy sentence provides the victim with some comfort in knowing that he will be behind bars for a very long time.
