Anuj Bidve killer Kiaran Stapleton jailed for murder

The man who shot dead Indian student Anuj Bidve in a "motiveless" murder in Greater Manchester has been jailed for life.

Kiaran Stapleton, 21, was found guilty of murder at Manchester Crown Court on Thursday following a five-week trial.

He shot the 23-year-old Lancaster University student on Boxing Day 2011 as he walked to the Manchester sales with friends.

Stapleton was told he would serve a minimum term of 30 years.

Ed Thomas reports from outside the court.
