A man has been remanded in custody after appearing in court charged with the murder of a man who was shot on the doorstep of his home in north London.

Joseph Hylton, 21, was pronounced dead at the scene in Mount Pleasant Road, Tottenham, on 7 May.

Junior Collier, 27, of no fixed abode, appeared at Highbury Corner magistrates later charged with murder on saturday.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the chest.

A court spokeswoman said Mr Collier would remain in custody until Tuesday when he is due to appear at the Old Bailey.

The Metropolitan Police said a 16-year-old who was also arrested in connection with the shooting had been released on bail pending further inquiries.
