Seven men have been found guilty of murdering a student – who was mistakenly killed in a drive by shooting.

19-year-old Aya Hachem was shot dead in Blackburn in May last year – after a tyre firm boss had arranged the killing of a rival businessman.

The jury at Preston Crown Court heard she had been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
