Three men have been charged with murder following an attack outside a ski centre in Milton Keynes.

Joseph Kent, 24, died two days after being assaulted outside Xscape in the early hours of 13 January.

Samir Bostan, 25, of Wolston Meadow, Middleton; Tariq Bostan, 26, of Sarum Road, Luton, and Hamza Noor, 22, of Ranelagh Road, Wembley, appeared before magistrates earlier.

The men were remanded in custody to appear at Luton Crown Court on Friday.

Initially all three had been charged with grievous bodily harm, but the charges were reviewed by the Crown Prosecution Service after Mr Kent, a Milton Keynes resident and tattoo artist at Lucky 13 in Northampton, died.

Two other men, aged 22 and 25, were also injured in the attack, but were discharged from hospital following treatment.
