Three more men have appeared in court accused of helping to plot the gun murder of a man behind Turnpike Lane Tube station.

The trio were allegedly involved in planning the murder of Ali Armagan, 32, who was gunned down in broad daylight as he sat in a car in Langham Parade on February 1 this year.

He was shot in the neck and bled to death at the scene before emergency services could help. A passenger in the car escaped unharmed.

Minicab driver Suleyman Tonbul, 54, his son Hasan Tonbul, 25, both of Grange Road, Upper Edmonton, and Mehmet Senel, 23, of Wood Mead, Grange Road, Tottenham, appeared for a brief hearing at the Old Bailey today via videolink from Pentonville prison.

They are all charged with murder and conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm. They did not enter a plea and were all remanded in custody.

They are due to stand trial alongside alleged gunmen Yunis Sagir, 23, and Ozan Toprak, 27, on February 4 next year.
