The alley in which Mr Nur was murdered is frequented by students.

During the sentencing, the judge commended Ethan Moore, a passerby who came to the aid of the victim. Mr Moore was also rewarded with £400 from public funds.

The three men were found guilty earlier this week, after 27 hours of deliberation by the jury.
