A jury has been sworn in at the trial of three men accused of murdering New Southgate teenager Joshua Folkes.

But prosecutors will not begin opening their case until tomorrow morning (Tuesday) to allow for outstanding preliminary matters to be concluded this afternoon.

Seventeen-year-old Joshua was stabbed to death in Bowes Road, Palmers Green, in the early hours of Tuesday, December 3.

Kreshnik Etemi, 18, Halil Ankay, 18, and a 17-year-old, who cannot be named, are all charged with murder.

They appeared this morning at The Old Bailey, where the trial is expected to last up to three weeks.

The jury has since been discharged for the day.
