A man has been charged with preventing the legal burial of a man who was found dead in a wheelie bin in north London.

Erik San-Filippo's body was discovered near Waitrose supermarket on Tollington Road in Islington on 11 May.

Post-mortem tests proved inconclusive and the 23-year-old Italian national's death is being treated as unexplained.

Gerardo Rossi, 52, was charged with preventing the lawful and decent burial of a dead body on Thursday. He will appear at court on 14 June.

Mr Rossi was originally arrested on suspicion of murder but had been bailed.
