A 21-year-old man has been charged with the murder of an Irishman in London.

Michael Hunt was found with serious injuries to his head and body in a skip in an alleyway off Station Road in South Norwood at around 7am on Saturday morning.

The 37-year-old was originally from Co Waterford.

He was taken to King's College Hospital, where he died later that day.

Detectives said Mr Hunt was well-known in the local community.

The man arrested in connection with the death will appear at Croydon Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
