Hundreds of people took part in a moving candlelit vigil to pay tribute to Tanis Bhandari, who died after an alleged axe attack on New Year’s Day in Devon.

Around 300 friends, relatives, villagers and strangers walked silently down the steep hill from Tanis’s family home in Tamerton Foliot, near Plymouth, to the meadow next to the Kings Arms public house, where the 27-year-old had spent the evening seeing in the New Year.

They were led by his family and close friends.

Two men are due to stand trial later this year accused of his murder.
