Three men charged with murder

Three men have been charged with murder following the death of a warehouse manager who was confronted by a gang in Halloween-style masks in Bristol.

Senel Mansiz, 30, died after a group entered M and M Catering Supplies in St Andrew's Road, where he was the night manager, on 29 October.

Stephen Sarkozi, 28, Brendon Weafer, 30, both from Fishponds, and Vincent Randall, 42, from Lawrence Weston, all in Bristol, will appear before city magistrates later.

All are charged with murder and robbery.

Four other men arrested in connection with the incident remain on police bail while inquiries continue.

After the death, detectives released a picture of Mr Mansiz, along with CCTV footage of a group entering the premises.

Mr Mansiz, from Lawrence Weston, was found lying on the ground at the premises, which supplies frozen food such as kebabs and burgers to the catering industry.

He was a well-respected member of Bristol's Turkish community.
