The Norwich Crown Court jury hearing the Simon Everitt murder trial today went to visit the site where it is alleged the 17-year-old was tied to a tree, doused with petrol and set on fire.

Mr Everitt's body was found dumped in a swamp near Mautby Woods outside Yarmouth in June last year. A post mortem suggested he had been tied to a tree, doused with petrol and set on fire.

Jimi-Lee Stewart, 25, of Nelson Road Central, Yarmouth, Maria Chandler, 40, of Lancaster Road, Yarmouth and Jonathan 'Munch' Clarke, 19, from Telford, all deny murder.

Jurors have heard that Mr Everitt, Clarke and Stewart had fallen out after they all dated the same girl Fiona Statham.
