This is the horrifying moment when a vengeful ex-boyfriend and his family prepare to murder the former lover of his former girlfriend in a pathogenic attack.
Training plumber Daniel Grogan, 20, became obsessively jealous after he discovered that Jay Sewell, 18, saw his ex-girlfriend Gemma Hodder, also 18, and made plans to kill him a few days later.
Harrowing images shown during his Old Bailey trial reveal the moment when he met his family and best friend to end Mr. Sewell’s life in Lee, southeast London.
In the clip they see themselves gathering in a park, with a group of them hanging out by the trunk of a car.
Within a few seconds, they run through the park – and a short while later they find their helpless victim with a fireman’s ax, baseball bats, hammers and knives.
Mr. Sewell, sitting in a car with friends and coming from Eltham, South East London, died of a single stab wound on the chest. He was also beaten twice in the legs.
Grogan was imprisoned last Tuesday for life with a minimum duration of 21 years in the Old Bailey.

The jury heard how Grogan became jealous of Mr Sewell the week before the attack because of his relationship with Gemma.
He repeatedly threatened to kill him and the couple arranged to meet on the night of December 11, 2018.
Mr. Sewell went to meet Grogan with friends and Gemma in the hope that they would stop harassing them.
But they were ambushed by the crowd with weapons and he was stabbed while he was in the car.
An 18-year-old man was also dragged into the attack and he and Mr. Sewell were taken to a hospital in South London.
He was declared dead in the hospital at 10.34 p.m. but his friend survived.
The gang was imprisoned for more than 60 years last Tuesday in Old Bailey in London.
Grogan, from Lee, received a life sentence and must have been behind bars for at least 21 years.
His father Robert, 58, was caged for 14 and a half years for manslaughter, inflicting serious physical injury (GBH) and violent disorder.

His sister Francesca, 30, was previously sentenced to 12 months for violent disorder.
Her friend Jamie Bennett, 32, was previously sentenced to 20 months in prison for violent disorder.
A 17-year-old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons, previously received a nine-month rehabilitation order and a supervision order.
A victim impact statement from mother Sewell, mother Sharon Louch, read: “It hurts me to know that Jay will never be able to make his dreams come true.
“He is my first thought when I wake up and the last before I go to bed. I do my utmost to protect my children against the pain, but I cannot. They all know they will never see their brother again.
Family friend Jamie Bennett (above), 31, and a 17-year-old boy were convicted of violent disorder. He was sentenced last year
“We as a family have taken all the necessary steps to ensure that we have been there to support Jay and show that we care about him.
‘I didn’t work and had so much time away from my children in a place in their lives that they needed me the most.
“There is no punishment that this court or another can come close to healing the pain or making up for not being able to look at my Jay’s face or hear him smile.
“I didn’t come here and didn’t expect it. However, it gives a glimmer of hope that those responsible have been called to account for their actions.
“Jay, you were a blessing and made us proud from the day you came to us until the moment you were taken.”
