Two men have been found not guilty of the Boxing Day murder of a man at a central London nightclub.

Danny Walker, 34, of Haldane Road, south-east London, and Gavin Allen, 32, of no fixed address, were cleared at the Old Bailey on Monday.

Hassan Mohammed Omer Isman, 31, of Poplar in east London, died after being shot at Shaftesbury's Avalon club in December 2013.

The venue later had its licence revoked by Westminster City Council.

A third man, Dean Robinson, 33, was convicted of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and intention to commit acts to pervert the course of justice in May last year.
