A man has appeared in court charged with murdering a man in Margate.

The body of a 38 year old man was found in Ethelbert Terrace on Monday.

Aurimas Vilius - who's 24 - and from Cornwall Gardens - will now appear at Maidstone Crown Court next Monday.

Detectives are continuing to investigate.

Temperatures soar in the South East

The South East has basked in the hottest day of the year so far and the scorching sun is set to keep temperatures some 10 degrees above the average for this time of year.

There are concerns about the elderly - and other vulnerable people in the heat and UV levels are reaching as high as Cyprus and Gibraltar.

But this heatwave is great news for the Kent and Sussex tourist trade.
