Identical triplets have been jailed for firearms offenses, after police were able to establish that all three brothers were involved in the crimes.

Ricky and Ralston Gabriel, 28, both semi-professional footballers, were jailed for 14 years by a court in London on Friday after being found guilty of conspiracy to possess a firearm with intent to endanger life.

The third triplet, Reiss, was found guilty of this and three further offenses and jailed for 18 years.
