A police officer has been jailed for eight years for the manslaughter of former footballer Dalian Atkinson.

PC Benjamin Monk was sentenced after being convicted by a jury at Birmingham Crown Court last week.

Monk, of West Mercia Police, tasered Mr Atkinson for 33 seconds, more than six times longer than the normal cycle, before kicking him at least twice in the head during a confrontation in August 2016.
