Manchester MP John Leech has spoken out against today’s sentencing of Mohammed Osman, jailed for the manslaughter of Chorlton soldier David Lee Collins.

“I know the family of David personally and I am very disappointed with this sentence, 8 years is not enough.
I can certainly understand why people would question the length of sentence especially when someone has been responsible for the death of their family member.”
A man will be sentenced in Cyprus today for stabbing to death a soldier from Manchester.
Fusilier David Collins, who was 19 and from Chorlton, died after a fight broke out in a nightclub in the resort of Ayia Napa last November.
He was stabbed the day before he was due to fly out to Afghanistan.
19 year old Mohammed Osman from London has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
