Snook and Moore were found guilty on three counts of rape

Two rapists who worked as a team to attack "vulnerable" women were jailed indefinitely today.

Stepbrothers Barry Snook, 32, and Neil Moore, 25, joined forces to trap and sexually abuse two women.

Snook and Moore used the pretence of a party to get one woman to come to their house to rape her.

They also took it in turns to rape a second woman while the other held her down - ignoring her desperate screams to stop.

Snook, of Church Drive, St George, Bristol, and Moore, of Poplar Fields, Warmley, south Gloucestershire, were convicted by a jury at Bristol Crown Court of three counts of rape.

They were acquitted of a further rape charge against a third woman while Moore was found guilty of the theft of a mobile phone belonging to the first victim.

Snook and Moore had at a previous hearing admitted the sexual grooming of a 15-year-old girl, who they had contacted via Facebook.

Judge Michael Roach said the pair posed a significant risk of further offending and passed indeterminate sentences for public protection.

"It is my judgment that these offences indicate clearly to me that these two men operated as a pair to commit serious sexual offences against these women who by age or temperament were vulnerable," the judge said."

The judge told Snook and Moore they would face minimum terms of eight years but may never be released.

They were placed on the sex offenders' register for life and banned from contact with any girl under the age of 16.
