A man has been jailed for life after he murdered a young father and stole his watch in Greenwich, south east London.

Danny Pearce, 31, was stabbed to death by Jordan Bailey-Mascoll as he was mugged by two armed men on King William Walk on 15 July, 2017.

Bailey-Mascoll, 25, from Dartford, was convicted of murder and other offences at Woolwich Crown Court on 8 June.

He was jailed at the same court and told to serve at least 34 years in prison.

In addition to murder, Bailey-Mascoll was jailed for three robbery offences, possession of a firearm with intent, possession of an imitation firearm with intent and possession of an offensive weapon.

The court heard how on the night of his murder Mr Pearce was walking with his girlfriend and two friends to a parked car after leaving a jazz club on Nevada Street.
