The mother of a 20-year-old brutally murdered as violence erupted at Manchester's Caribbean Carnival said she will be forever haunted by her son's death.

Javell Morgan was stabbed to death in Moss Side last summer, when two groups of young men from Huddersfield clashed in the street, one side armed with guns, the other with knives.

Javell was not armed but was chased down and repeatedly stabbed by Jacob Doughty, 22, and Deontay Crosfield. Manchester Crown Court heard that Doughty inflicted the fatal blow with a fearsome 'samurai sword'. "This case involved a very serious disturbance in what should have been a joyful occasion in Moss Side," Judge Suzanne Goddard KC said. "No sentence that I can pass on you can possibly atone for the pain that you have caused," she told the defendants.

Doughty must serve a minimum of 21 years, and Crosfield 20 years, before they can be considered for release. Prosecutors argued that the case involved 'conflict between rival gangs'.
