The second teenager convicted of murdering Hampden Park father Christopher Poole has been named today as Joe Chapman.

Newspapers had been unable to name the 15-year-old during the trial because he was under the age of 17.

But after he was convicted of murdering Mr Poole by a jury at Lewes Crown Court on Tuesday morning, the judge in the case Anthony Scott Gall agreed to requests by journalists to lift the ban on naming Chapman.

Chapman and his 19-year-old co-defendant Shane Noble had both denied murdering Mr Poole outside the Premier store in the Hydneye last August.

But they were found guilty after a two week trial by the five men and seven women and both have been remanded in custody until they will be sentenced in March.
