A body found on Nottinghamshire farmland has been formally identified as that of a man from Scotland.

Police named the murder victim found in Everton on Saturday, as Alan James Easton, 50, from Dunbartonshire.

Three people were taken into custody after appearing before magistrates.

Angela Dowling, 47, and Stephen Schofield, 31, of Windmill Avenue, Conisbrough, South Yorks; and Matthew Duffy, 22, of Sussex Street, Doncaster, will appear at crown court on Monday.

The body was discovered on Middle Cross Lane between Harwell Sluice Lane and Everton Lane by a member of the public, police said.

Two other people questioned in connection with the death were released without charge earlier this week.
