A man has been charged with murder after a 60-year-old grandfather was stabbed to death in an east London pub.

Aiden O'Mahony was at the JJ Moon's pub on High Street, Hornchurch, on 10 January. He died from a single stab wound to the chest.

James Roberts, 31, from Hornchurch, has been charged with murder and will appear at Redbridge Magistrates' Court later.

Mr O'Mahony's family said they were "devastated" by his death.

They said: "Aiden was a very loved son, brother, partner and granddad.

"His passions were Spurs, his family, friends and his dog Lily."
