Two teens were arrested four days after the attack and have now been charged with the murder of Mr Quigley, who was from Wymondham in Norfolk.

Alfie Hammett, 18, of Rushmere St Andrew on the outskirts of Ipswich, and a 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, are due to appear before Ipswich magistrates on Tuesday.

They have also been charged with possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

Following the attack, police were given extra powers to stop and search anyone in the Ipswich area as part of their investigation into Mr Quigley's death.
