Seven more people have been charged in connection with the death of a teenager in Scarborough.

Michael Graham, 19, was stabbed to death on the seafront in April.

Five teenage boys aged between 14 and 17 and an 18-year-old man have been charged with violent disorder, North Yorkshire Police said.

A 23-year-old woman has been charged with assisting an offender. They will all appear at Scarborough Magistrates' Court on 28 June.

Police also said an 18-year-old man and four teenagers previously arrested in connection with the death had answered bail.

The man was rebailed while inquiries continue and the teenagers were released without charge.

A 17-year-old boy charged with Mr Graham's murder appeared at Leeds Crown Court on Monday to deny killing the teenager. He also denied a separate charge of wounding with intent.

He was remanded in custody to stand trial at Teesside Crown Court on 27 August.
