A sixth person has been charged with the murder of Ipswich teenager Tavis Spencer-Aitkens.

Isaac Calver, 18, appeared at Ipswich Magistrates' Court today alongside Leon Glasgow, 41.

Three other men and a 16-year-old have already been charged with killing 17-year-old Tavis, who died after being stabbed in the heart outside a parade of shops on the Nacton estate in June.

All of the accused are due to appear at Ipswich Crown Court on Friday.

Tavis was attacked on Packard Avenue by a group of males at around 16:50 BST on 2 June.
