A 29-year-old Barnet man died after being attacked in a pub garden in Barnet on Saturday night.

Daniel Corroyer, 29, of Leeside, Barnet, was taken to Barnet Hospital, Wellhouse Lane, suffering from serious head and nose injuries after police were called to the Albion pub, in Union Street, at 10.50pm. He was later transferred to the Royal Free Hospital, in Pond Street, Hampstead, but he died on Monday.

A post-mortem examination revealed he died of head injuries.

Officers closed Union Street while forensic evidence was taken from the pub's garden.

Meanwhile, Sunday morning services were cancelled at Mary Immaculate and St Gregory the Great Church, next door to the pub, as congregants were not allowed access to the street.

A 17-year-old boy was charged with murder on Monday. He appeared before Barnet Youth Court, sitting at Brent Magistrates' Court, High Road, Willesden, on Tuesday. The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is being remanded in custody until tomorrow, when he is due to reappear before the court.

A 19-year-old man who was arrested on Sunday was released without charge.
