Two teenage brothers have been sentenced to eight years each in youth custody for killing 10-year-old Nigerian schoolboy Damilola Taylor.

Danny Preddie, 18, and Ricky Preddie, 19, from Peckham, south London, were convicted in August of the manslaughter of Taylor who died after being stabbed in the leg with a broken bottle.

He bled to death on the stairwell of a run-down housing estate in November 2000, just months after arriving in the country.

The Preddie brothers, who were 12 and 13 at the time of the killing, were found guilty of manslaughter by a jury at London's Old Bailey court.
