Mayor of Liverpool Joanne Anderson has welcomed the conviction of Thomas Cashman for the murder of schoolgirl Olivia Pratt-Korbel.

The nine-year old died after being shot at her family’s home in Dovecot last August.

34 year-old Cashman, of Grenadier Drive in West Derby, has been found guilty at Manchester Crown Court.

Mayor Joanne said: “Olivia’s senseless murder shocked the entire city, and her family and friends are foremost in our thoughts today.

“I hope the verdict will bring some comfort to her family, knowing that justice has been done.

“We are working closely with Merseyside Police and other partners to eradicate violent crime from our communities.”
