A man who has been extradited from Nigeria pleaded not guilty to murdering a teenager outside a So Solid Crew gig in Luton 14 years ago.

Adebayo Ekun, 38, is accused of killing 18-year-old Marcus Hall, who was beaten and stabbed to death outside the gig on 21 March 2001.

He also denied a charge of violent disorder on the same night when he appeared at Luton crown court today.

Two previous trials involving other defendants were held in 2002 and 2003.

Ekun was remanded in custody by Judge Michael Kay QC.
