A father from Romford who killed his toddler son because he was crying has been jailed for nine years today (Wednesday 7 Dec).

Nathan Allen brought both fists down on 14-month-old Fletcher's abdomen as he lay in his cot.

The youngster died in January from internal bleeding and damaged kidneys.

The 27-year -old from Erith Crescent was jailed for manslaughter at the Old Bailey after a jury cleared him of murder.

Allen had been left with the boy for less than 30 minutes while his partner 19-year-old Danielle Hands went to see her family.

Judge Brian Barker told Allen: "Your reaction was aggressive and extreme. You will have to live with your actions for the rest of your life.

"This was a terrible act and you must take responsibility for your actions.''
