Three teenagers have been charged with the murder of a schoolboy who was found dead in a Carlisle cemetery.

Jordan Watson, 14, was discovered in a secluded part of St John the Baptist Church cemetery in Carlisle, Cumbria, by a member of the public on Tuesday morning.

Brahnn Finley and Daniel Johnston, both 19, and 18-year-old George Thomson, all from Carlisle, were charged on Saturday with his murder.

Jordan died from neck and head wounds caused by a sharp implement in what police described as a "savage and brutal attack".

Cumbria Constabulary said the three would appear at Carlisle Magistrates' Court on Monday, adding: "Police would like to thank the public for all their help with recent appeals."
