Anthony Jones, 26, of Woodbury Down Estate, Harringay, north London, attacked the star outside a nightclub in May 2009.

Officers gave first aid to Professor Green - real name Stephen Manderson - who had been stabbed in the neck with a glass bottle and suffered a deep cut to his throat.

The 27-year-old was taken to hospital for treatment following the attack outside Cargo nightclub in Shoreditch, east London.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said Jones was jailed at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

He was found guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent at a trial at the same court in October last year.
