Disgraced former Chinese politician, Bo Xilai, has been found guilty of corruption, embezzlement and abuse of power.
Bo, who denied the charges, was removed from office in 2012 amid a scandal which saw his wife convicted for the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood.
A court in Jinan delivered its verdict on Sunday and sentenced him to life in jail, although has the right to appeal.
The BBC's John Sudworth described the verdict as a "political purge".
