Two men have been charged with murder after a first-year Bournemouth University student was discovered stabbed to death in a Dorset garden.

Luke Campbell, from Belper, Derbyshire, was found in the grounds of a house in Boscombe, Bournemouth, on Saturday.

The 20-year-old had recently started a software systems degree.

Larbi Mohamed, 20, and Saeed Alkadir, 21, both from London, have been charged with his murder. They are due to appear at Bournemouth magistrates on Saturday.

A post-mortem examination found Mr Campbell, of St John's Road, Boscombe, and known as Luka to his friends, died of a stab wound to the chest.

His body was spotted by a passer-by in a communal garden behind a semi-detached property which had been converted into several flats.

On Thursday, his mother said he was a "most loving, thoughtful and protective" son.
