A man has been found guilty of murdering a lorry driver who he lured to his death believing he was a paedophile.

Darren Kelly, 42, from Basildon, Essex, was kicked, punched and stabbed to death near his home last October.

Chris Carroll, 20, of Pevensey Close, Pitsea, denied murder and faced a trial at Chelmsford Crown Court.

Three teenagers - two 17-year-old boys and a 16-year-old girl - were found not guilty of murder.

Carroll will be sentenced on Wednesday.
