A British man, who studied at Cambridge University, has appeared in court in connection with the gruesome murder of two women in Hong Kong.

Rurik George Caton Jutting, named in a court document, had been arrested after the bodies of the women - reportedly sex workers from Indonesia - were found at his flat in the Wan Chai district of the former British colony in the early hours of Saturday.

The 29-year-old has been identified as a Cambridge-educated banker. Bank of America Merrill Lynch spokesman Paul Scanlon said a person with that name had worked at the bank until recently.

Mr Jutting has been remanded into custody and is due to appear again on November 10.
