Khaleem Harris was his passenger. Both 20-year-olds were found guilty of manslaughter and violent disorder and each were sentenced to 13 years. Kamrren Harris, aged 18, was sentenced to 27 months for grievous bodily harm, violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon.

Five other men, all aged between 17 and 21 were also jailed for violent disorder.

We welcome the sentences passed down to these men. Their cowardly and violent actions on that evening resulted in Jonathan receiving fatal injuries after being deliberately run over by a car.

They then proceeded to drive off abandoning the car just a few miles away and also left Jonathan fighting for his life.

Jonathan's family thanked the local community for their support and courage coming forward as witnesses.

They said in a statement that the memory of Jonathan would 'live on as a happy time in our lives and we will spend every day ensuring that his young son will remember his father for the beautiful person that he was.'
