Two men have been jailed for helping one of the killers of a nursery teacher, after she was shot while out celebrating her 24th birthday.

Sabrina Moss was killed when she was caught up in a gang turf war, in Kilburn, in August 2013.

Reid Daniel, 24, and Mathew Bouzemada, 22, were found guilty of perverting the course of justice for destroying the getaway driver's phones.

At the Old Bailey they were both sentenced to three years in prison.

Hassan Hussain, Martell Warren and Yassin James were given life sentences, and each ordered to serve a minimum of 37 years for her murder, in September last year.

Judge Stephen Kramer told Daniel, from Hayes and Bouzemada, from Harlesden, north-west London: "You tried to thwart the police investigation and prevent the arrest of Martell Warren.

"Luckily, in neither case what you did, prevented his arrest or successful prosecution."

The Old Bailey heard Miss Moss and her friend Sabrina Gachette, 25, were outside takeaway shop, the Woody Grill, when they were shot by two hooded men armed with a sub-machine gun and a shotgun.

Miss Moss, the mother of a four-year-old, was shot in the heart and died in hospital. Miss Gachette was hit in the back by more than 50 gunshot pellets but survived.

The court was told Reid and Bouzemada hid and destroyed two of Warren's phones while he fled to Brussels.

Bouzemada was also given an additional six months for breaching a 12-month suspended sentence for possession of drugs with intent to supply.
