Two men accused of gunning down an aspiring rapper outside his South Norwood home have denied murder.

Musician Umar Tufail was shot in the head, while sat in his car outside his home on Wharncliffe Road on July 15.

The 25-year-old was taken to St George's Hospital but died the next day.

Kyrone Daley, 19, of Unity Close, Norwood and Sanchez Thomas, 19, of no fixed address pleaded not guilty when they appeared at the Old Bailey this morning.

The pair were remanded in custody until their trial which will begin on March 11, next year.
