Four men have admitted manslaughter over the death of a man who was found in woodland with stab wounds.

Ahmed Musse, 32, died in hospital after he was found with leg wounds at Sporhams, Basildon, at about 22:00 BST on 26 August last year.

He was described by his family as "a cherished son, brother, uncle, cousin, fiancé and friend".

The four men will be sentenced at Chelmsford Crown Court on 19 April.

They are Hussain Ahmed, 23, of Bacon Street, London; Mohammed Ahmed, 23, of Jamaica Street, London; Abdul Salah, 20, of York Avenue, Middlesex, and Jake Rowlands, 25, of no fixed address.

A fifth man, Gary Goodwin, 36, of Princes Close, Laindon, admitted conspiracy to rob Mr Musse.

All have been remanded in custody.
