A man has been jailed for stabbing to death another man in a mass brawl in Windsor town centre.
Sean Noctor, 24, died in hospital from a single stab wound inflicted during a fight between a group of men in The Goswells in the early hours of 28 July.
Jordan Doyle, 21, of Kimberley Close, Luton will serve a minimum of 21 years.
He was also convicted of violent disorder and given 18 months to run concurrently. Two other men were also jailed for their part in the fight.
Benjamin Brooks, 22, of The Chilterns, Leighton Buzzard, had already pleaded guilty to violent disorder and was found not guilty of murder.
He was sentenced to 14 months' imprisonment.
Lahin Miah, 26, of Windsor Road, Leighton Buzzard, was sentenced to two years after being found guilty of violent disorder.
He was found not guilty of murder.
Speaking after the sentence, Mr Noctor's family released a statement which said they had "been given the real life sentence".
"There is no punishment or sentence just enough for the loss of our son and brother Sean," they added.
"The impact that Sean's murder has had on us will remain with us for the rest of our lives.
"Losing Sean has left us so lonely that we are unsure how to face the future without him by our sides.
"We will forever have to live without him."
The family also thanked those who had "generously donated" nearly £9,000 to the KnifeCrimes.org, a knife crime resource and charity.
They said they intend to use the money to raise awareness about knife crime and the "deter people from carrying knives".
Earlier, two other men were also found not guilty of Mr Noctor's murder at the Old Bailey.
Harry Turney, 20, of Orion Way, Leighton Buzzard, and George Hay, 26, of Jasper Avenue in Hanwell, west London, were cleared of murder and violent disorder.
