Osborne, 47, who was convicted in 2017 of ramming a van into a crowd of people outside London’s mosque, was stabbed by convict murdered Patrick Chandler in an ‘unprovoked attack’ on HMP Full Sutton, in York.

He was left with permanent damage to his right eye after Chandler, 48, stabbed him in the head, arm and torso with a homemade knife made from a wooden tool, a court heard.

Osborne – who is serving a 43-year sentence behind bars for his role in the terrorist attack – was attacked so violently that part of the weapon broke and lodged in his forehead.

The attack left Osborne “terrified” that he would lose his sight permanently after being told he might need a “glass eye” in the future.

Hull Crown Court heard Chandler launch the vicious attack on Osborne while he was on the playing field at York’s maximum security prison.

Chandler was sentenced to life with a minimum of 18 years for the murder of John Comer in Manningtree, Essex, in 2017, before being later given an additional 10 years after assaulting another inmate at a Chelmsford prison.

A judge told him that he will not be eligible for parole until 2056 – when he will be 83.

The unemployed father of four from Wales drove his vehicle into a large crowd outside London’s mosque four years ago.

He now faces the prospect of dying behind bars as he will not be eligible for parole until he is at least 91 years old.

The prosecution told the court that Chandler’s attack on far-right Islamophobe Osborne had caused him “significant” and “permanent damage” to his eye.

Her Honor Judge McKone said Osborne was “very afraid of losing sight in his right eye,” and while he was expected to make a full recovery, the glass may need to be replaced in the future.

The attack also sustained permanent tissue damage to his arm.

“It is understandable that he has been affected – mentally and adversely – by your attack and feels more vulnerable as a result,” the judge said.

Chandler, of Full Sutton, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm and having a sharpened instrument in prison at a previous hearing.

His offense was considered the most serious category due to the premeditated nature and extent of Osborne’s injuries, which meant another life sentence was at stake.

But Kevin Blount, who defended Chandler, told the court that a further life sentence behind bars would wipe out “every glimmer of hope” he had of being a free man.

Judge McKone sentenced the defendant to an additional eight years, telling him she acknowledged he had been in prison for a long time but that without further punishment for last summer’s crime, he “would have no motivation not to act like that.” to behave’.

She told him, “You’re obviously mulling over alleged wrongdoing and then making a calculated decision to act violently, and that makes you very dangerous.”
