Riot victim's father Tariq Jahan: "I regret what happened"

The Birmingham father who called for calm just hours after his own son had been killed in last summer's rioting in Birmingham has been convicted of GBH.

Tariq Jahan was given a 12 month suspended sentence with 100 hours of unpaid work after being found guilty of attacking a man in a road rage incident.

Speaking exclusively to the BBC, Mr Jahan was asked whether he felt he'd let down all the people who thought he was a hero.
