Three further arrests have been made in connection with the murder of a college student in Essex, police have said.

Francis Ntena Nsiangangu, 31, a trainee painter and decorator, died after being stabbed in Tower Hill, Brentwood, on 27 September.

Clive Mundoma, 18, of High Street, Brentwood appeared before magistrates on Wednesday charged with murder.

Three other men, aged 18, 19 and 20, were arrested earlier.

Essex Police said an 18-year-old man from east London and a 19-year-old man from Chelmsford were arrested on suspicion of murder, while a 20-year-old man from Wolverhampton was arrested on suspicion of drugs offences.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Nsiangangu's provisional cause of death to be a stab wound to the heart.
