A man who drunkenly attacked and killed an 80-year-old Kentish Town woman in broad daylight at a Camden Road bus stop has been jailed for six years.
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.
