Two men have been charged with murder over the death of a man in Windsor.

24-year-old Seàn Noctor was taken to hospital after officers were called to a fight in Barry Avenue in the early hours of Sunday morning – he later died.

Police say post mortem tests have shown he was killed by a single stab wound.

Benjamin Brooks, 21, from The Chilterns in Leighton Buzzard and Jordan Lewis Doyle, 21, from Kimberley Close in Luton have both been charged with one count of murder.

They’re due to appear before Slough Magistrates’ Court this morning.

Five other people have been arrested in connection with the murder.

A 20-year-old man from Leighton Buzzard is still being questioned.

A 25-year-old man from Leighton Buzzard has been arrested on suspicion of murder and a 24-year-old woman from Leighton Buzzard has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender – they’re both still in police custody.

A 27-year-old man from Harrow and a 26-year-old man from London have both been released on bail.

Yesterday, Mr Noctor’s family released a tribute to him, saying he “loved life” and “saw the best in people”.

In a statement, his family said: “Our lovely son and brother was taken away from us needlessly on Sunday.

“He was friendly and effervescent and we feel so privileged to have known him.

“Seán loved life. He loved his family and friends and with his cheeky smile he brought happiness and good times to those who knew him.

“Seán always saw the best in people and was willing to help those he cared about.

“We love him so much and our hearts are broken.

“Seán will be greatly missed and the memories we have of him will always be with us.

“As we try to come to terms with his premature passing, we ask for privacy at this difficult time.”

Anyone with information about Mr Noctor’s murder is asked to call Superintendent Jim Weems at Thames Valley Police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
