Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to five years in prison for the culpable homicide of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

He shot her through the bathroom door in his home on Valentines Day last year, claiming he thought she was an intruder.

On the second charge of violating the firearms act Judge Masipa sentenced him to three years, wholly suspended.

The sentences would run concurrently.
