Detective Inspector Laura Casey of Bradford District CID, said:

“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.”
