Two men have been charged with murder after a man was stabbed to death in a suspected case of mistaken identity.

Christopher Foster, 34, was attacked outside St Christopher's Inn in Borough High Street, on 29 November.

He was attacked as he smoked with a friend at about 11:45 GMT, and died the following morning in hospital.

Aytach Lisani, 33, of Sir Francis Way, Brentwood; and Billy Dove, 29, of Setchell Way, Bermondsey; will appear in court later.

Mr Foster, from Southwark, south-east London, worked in administration for a law firm and had a four-year-old daughter.

A post-mortem examination found he died from a single stab wound to the back.
