Four people have been charged with the murder of a teenager found dead in a park in West Yorkshire.

They are also accused of robbing Amar Aslam, 17, whose body was discovered in Crow Nest Park in Dewsbury, on Sunday night.

The four are due to appear before Dewsbury Magistrates' Court later.

Seven males, aged between 12 and 20, were held in connection with his death. Three have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

A post-mortem examination revealed Amar had died from head injuries he sustained during an attack.

Police teams have scoured a pond in the park where Amar was found, but have not commented on whether any weapons have been recovered.

In a statement issued through police, Amar's family said they had been "shattered" by his death.

His sister, Samreen, said: "Nothing can replace our brother and we still believe he will come through the door.

"There will always be a gap where there is a part missing.

"He always kept himself to himself, was well liked by others and was always thinking of others."

Amar's body was found in the park's walled garden by two passers-by who rang for an ambulance.
