A man who assaulted two charity workers monitoring a hunt has been given a suspended sentence after Princess Diana's eldest sister vouched for him.

George Grant, who works for the Belvoir Hunt in the East Midlands, assaulted the men with his son Thomas Grant and left one victim with a broken neck.

However, Lady Sarah McCorquodale told the judge that George Grant would lose his job and home if he were jailed.

Both men were given 16-month prison sentences, suspended for two years.
