Two men have denied murdering Ipswich teenager Tavis Spencer-Aitkens.

Leon Glasgow, 41, of no fixed address, and Adebayo Amusa, 20, of London, pleaded not guilty to murder via video link at Ipswich Crown Court.

Isaac Calver, 18, of St Helen's Street in Ipswich, also appeared but did not enter a plea.

Two other men and a 16-year-old boy have already denied killing the 17-year-old, who was fatally stabbed on the Nacton estate in June.
