Three men charged with the murder of Dagenham dad-of-two Neill Buchel are due to indicate their plea at the Old Bailey today.

Scott Hunt, 41, believed to have been Mr Buchel’s housemate in Braintree Road, Dagenham, will appear in the dock alongside Chas Quye, 36, of Stansgate Road, Dagenham, and Elvis Kwiatkowski, 35, of Clopton Close, Royston, Hertfordshire.

South African born Mr Buchel’s dismembered body was found in the lake at Chase Nature Reserve, Dagenham, in April after he had been declared missing almost a month earlier.

He is survived by estranged wife Sharon and two daughters, Caitlin, 10, and Megan, 16.
