Three men have been jailed for their involvement in the fatal stabbing of a man in Calderdale.
Alex Holroyd, aged 19, was stabbed in Todmorden town centre in January . He died in hospital.
Hanif Mohammed, 25, of Todmorden, pleaded guilty to manslaughter at an earlier hearing and admitted he struck the fatal blow.
Johannis Thompson, 44, and Mohammed Afsar, 35, both from Bradford, admitted conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm.
Mohammed was jailed for 10 years at Leeds Crown Court while Thompson was jailed for six years and Afsar for four.
Det Supt Chris Thompson said: “It is clear that Alex Holroyd had been in dispute with a group of men in Tod-morden, including Hanif Mohammed, for some time.
“As a result Mohammed had sought the assistance of Johannis Thompson and Mohammed Afsar on contract of payment to deal with Alex.
“Thompson is a known violent criminal and together they plotted to cause Alex serious harm.
“This is a cynical and cowardly crime which has resulted in the needless and tragic death of a 19-year-old man.”
