Hackney man Harry Goodwin-Sims, 29, assaulted Ourania Lambrou, a Cypriot great-grandmother, during a series of alcohol-fuelled attacks on March 31 this year.

Before the incident, he was seen trying to attack random members of the public, and even moving cars.

Goodwin-Sims, who pleaded guilty to manslaughter, also had two months added to his prison sentence for assaulting a police officer whilst in custody. He will also serve a further four years on licence.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding, said: “Goodwin-Sims’ actions that day not only posed a danger to himself but to all those around him and sadly Ms Lambrou suffered the worst consequence of his drunken and dangerous behaviour.

“Ms Lambrou’s family have been left devastated by the ordeal and I hope that knowing he will now serve a lengthy sentence behind bars brings them some measure of comfort.”
