A man from Sheffield has been jailed for three years and nine months for killing a student with one punch.

Nathan Tomlinson, 24, of Haslam Crescent, Lowedges, attacked Bradford student Anowar Tagabo on a night out in Sheffield city centre on 25 May.

Mr Tagabo, originally from Sudan, was studying in his first year of Peace and Development at the University of Bradford.

He went to Sheffield for a celebration and afterwards went into the city with a friend, but they became separated during the night.

Mr Tagabo was approached by three men on Carver Street at around 4.20am and was punched once by Tomlinson, who knocked him unconscious.

He was taken to hospital where he died on 3 June.

A post-mortem examination concluded that he had died from a head injury.

Tomlinson had admitted manslaughter at Sheffield Crown Court in October.
