Bilal Mumin, 20, was found guilty of murder, violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon over the attack which left Mr Jonuzi - an Albanian man also known as Edmond Preci - fatally wounded and his brother Eraldi with a fractured skull.

During a trial at the Old Bailey, Mumin was shown on CCTV wielding a knife and stabbing Edmond Jonuzi, as a number of others also attacked the brothers.

The attack was seemingly unprovoked, and police said the same group of men had attacked several others that night in the area of the Ducketts Common park.

Alongside the Finchley Road man, Saydomar Mohammed, 21 of Ranelagh Road, Tottenham, was also convicted of violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon, with five others found guilty of violent disorder.
