Two men have been charged with the murder of a 20-year-old man who suffered serious injuries in a shopping centre car park.

Police and paramedics were called to Margate Road, Broadstairs, Kent, at 10.12pm on Tuesday, where they found Carl Gregory, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

John Dickson, 27, of Northdown Road, Cliftonville, Margate, and Christopher Pollard, 20, of Brimstone Hill in Meopham, have been charged in connection with his death and are due to appear by video-link at Medway Magistrates' Court later.

Mr Gregory's family said in a statement released through Kent Police: "Carl was a loving son, brother and grandson who was a typical 20-year-old who enjoyed gaming, modern technology and Pokemon Go.

"We would like to reiterate that contrary to media reports, Pokemon Go cannot be attributed to his death.

"Carl will be greatly missed by family and friends and we are still in a position where we are trying to come to terms with his death, and as such we would request some privacy at this difficult time."
