Three teenagers have appeared before court charged with the murder of a man outside a fast food shop in Ipswich.

The three 16-year-old boys, who are all from Ipswich but cannot be named because of their age, are accused of murder following the death of 45-year-old Richard Day.

The trio appeared before Ipswich Crown Court on Monday, June 8 for a mention hearing ahead of a trial, which is set for July 13.

They were arrested after Mr Day was found lying on the ground outside the Kebapizza takeaway in St Matthew’s Street.
