Mr Hill was treated at the scene and taken to the Lister Hospital in Stevenage where he later died.

The three defendants appeared before magistrates in Hatfield on Thursday and are due at St Albans Crown Court on Monday.

Hertfordshire Police urged witnesses to come forward.

Det Insp Iain MacPherson said: "I am urging any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward so we can establish the full circumstances surrounding Cameron's death.
