The Australian man who killed six people in a car attack has been sentence to life in prison.

James Gargasoulas drove a stolen car into pedestrians in Melbourne's city centre in January, 2017.

In a statement to the court, the 29-year-old said he carried out the attack after receiving a premonition.

However a judge called it one of the worst mass murders in Australian history.

He will be eligible for parole after 46 years.
