A 20-year-old man involved in a disturbance on a bus which ended in a fatal stabbing outside Stockwell Tube station has been jailed after pleading guilty to manslaughter.

Evan Edwards, of Paton House, Stockwell Road, was jailed for 13 years at the Old Bailey on 24 November after admitting the manslaughter of 22-year-old Babafemi Junaid, following a retrial.

He had pleaded guilty in October at the same court.

Police said the victim had become the inadvertent focus of an attack by a group after a disturbance on a 155 bus spilled onto the street.

He was not on the bus but was waiting at the bus stop.

A 19-year-old man; two 18-year-old men; a 22-year-old man and a 23-year-old man were all arrested as part of the investigation. No further action will be taken against them.

On Friday 24 April at the Old Bailey four men, who were charged, alongside Edwards, with murder were found not guilty.
