A fifth man charged over the shooting of a 29-year-old man in West Sussex has been remanded in custody.

David Martin, 43, of Baring Road, Lewisham, south-east London, appeared before Crawley magistrates on Saturday.

Mr Martin has been charged with conspiracy to murder and possession of a firearm with intent.

He will next appear at Lewes Crown Court on 8 April.

Three men from Birmingham and one from Gwent, Wales, are also facing charges.

Daniel Martin, 30, of Sherborne Street, Birmingham, and Delroy Hare, 50, of Fleet Street, Birmingham, have been charged with attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Malachi Halstead, 29, from Gwent, and Adrian Thomas, 29, from Birmingham, have been charged with conspiracy to murder after the incident in Park Way.

They are all currently in custody.
