MP: Eight years not enough for Manchester soldier's killer

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.”

– John Leech MP
