A man who stabbed a fellow farm worker in the neck after a row over spicy food has been jailed for five years.

Dean Loughran, 48, attacked Reda Gabarron with a kitchen knife after sparking an argument by squirting hand sanitiser into his meal, a court heard.

The row took place in the communal kitchen of the farm in Crediton, Devon, where both men were living and working in 18 March 2020.

The 31-year-old victim was making food he intended to share with the defendant when they had a disagreement over Loughran’s request to add more spice.
