Two men denied murdering a 29-year-old man following a pub brawl in Plaistow when they appeared at the Old Bailey.

George Forde, 22, and Reece Hussain, 21, both of Barclay Road, Plaistow, are charged with murder, GBH and possession of an offensive weapon.

They appeared in court last Tuesday.

Edward Stokes, 29, died of knife-related injuries at the Army Navy pub in March.

The pair will stand trial at the Old Bailey on October 24.
