Although an offender had taken no physical part in a serious assault, in which the victim was stabbed, burned and had his wrist broken, he had played a full part by being there throughout and encouraging the attack by his presence. His sentence of 27 months' imprisonment for unlawful wounding was not excessive, and his continued presence and extensive criminal history justified his receiving the same sentence as a co-defendant who had broken the victim's wrist.
