Lewis Gill was jailed for a total of four-and-a-half years at Salisbury Crown Court

A man who admitted killing another man in an attack outside a supermarket has been jailed.

Andrew Young, 40, suffered a head injury and died in hospital after the assault at the Tesco Express store in Charminster Road, Bournemouth, in 2013.

Lewis Gill, 20, of Ridge Road, Sutton, south London, was given a four-year jail term at Salisbury Crown Court after admitting manslaughter.

Police described it as a "violent attack on an innocent man".

Gill, who carried out the assault on 6 November, had an extra six months added to his sentence after admitting an unrelated handling stolen goods charge and breaching a suspended sentence order.

Det Insp Marcus Hester, of Dorset Police, said: "This was a violent attack on an innocent man which had a tragic outcome.

"This case shows that violence does not resolve anything and can have far-reaching consequences not imagined at the time."
