The trial of six people accused of the murder of Tavis Spencer-Aitkens enters its second day today.

Our reporters are at Ipswich Crown Court for the trial and will be bringing you live updates here.

Later in the day we will have full coverage of today’s proceedings.

Yesterday the court heard that Ipswich teenager Tavis Spencer-Aitkens was allegedly “butchered” to death in a revenge attack by members of a rival group.

He was stabbed in Packard Avenue, Ipswich on June 2 and died from his injuries.

Before the court are Aristote Yenge, 23, of Spring Road, Ipswich; Adebayo Amusa, 20, of Sovereign Road, Barking; Callum Plaats, 23, of Ipswich; Isaac Calver, 19, of Firmin Close, Ipswich; a 16-year-old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons; and Leon Glasgow, 42, of no fixed address.
