Three teenagers have been charged with the murder of gay barman David Morley.

Mr Morley, 37, from Chiswick, west London, died after he and a friend were attacked on London's South Bank shortly after 3am on Saturday, 30 October.

The three charged are Barry Lee, 19, a market trader from Kennington, and two 16-year-old boys.

They are charged with murder, attempted grievous bodily harm, robbery and violent disorder and are due before Camberwell magistrates on Monday.

Four other suspects have been bailed to return to separate south London police stations.

Candle-lit vigil

A post-mortem examination showed Mr Morley died from multiple injuries. He had 40 distinct bruises as well as a ruptured spleen and fractured ribs.

More than 1,000 people attended a candle-lit vigil in London in his memory on Friday.

People gathered at St Anne's Church in Soho while others lit candles in the street. Some then proceeded to the crime scene.

Mr Morley worked at the Admiral Duncan pub in 1999 when a nail bomb killed three and injured 73.

He escaped with minor burns and helped rebuild the pub after the attack by David Copeland.
