Three men have been charged with the murder of a doorman who was stabbed to death at a private party in London's West End on New Year's Day.

Security guard Tudor Simionov, 33, was attacked outside Fountain House at around 05:30 GMT on 1 January.

The Romanian, who lived in Ilford, was attacked by a group of men who tried to enter the party, police said.

Three men, aged between 20 and 25, are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Scotland Yard named the trio as Haroon Akram, 25, Adham Khalil, 20 and Adham Elshalakany, 23.

All three are charged with Mr Simionov's murder, as well as four counts of grievous bodily harm and one count of violent disorder.

A 26-year-old woman has already been charged with perverting the course of justice in relation to the case and a 25-year-old man has been charged with violent disorder.
