Man jailed for manslaughter

A 22-year-old man from Northampton has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to manslaughter and assault.

Courtney Flanagan was sentenced after pleading guilty to the manslaughter of Paul Smith.

He suffered a head injury in an assault at the Edge of Town pub on Regent Square in July last year and died in hospital nearly two months later.

Northamptonshire police have thanked Mr Smith’s family for their support and understanding during the investigation and hope the sentencing helps to bring some comfort and closure for them.
