The 17-year-old pleaded guilty to manslaughter on February 4 at Oxford Crown Court.

A 16-year-old boy from Banbury was acquitted of all charges against him.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Bosley, said: “I am satisfied that the teenager in this case has admitted his involvement and has now been sentenced.

“This case shows once again the consequences that assaulting someone with a weapon can have and the subsequent impact on family, friends and our communities.

“Our thoughts remain with Mr Williamson’s friends and family and I hope that the sentencing will bring some closure to them.

“I would like to thank Mr Williamson’s family for their support throughout the investigation.”
