A trial into the murder of a dad of three from Canonbury has been postponed.

Mehmet Hassan, a 56-year-old father of three and professional gambler, was found dead in his Baxter Road flat last March after winning £3,000 at the Palm Beach casino in Mayfair.

Leonie Granger, 24, of Balmoral Road, Gillingham, Nicholas Chandler, 28, of Heenan Close, Bow and Kyrran Jackson, 27, of Romborough Way, all deny murder.

The trial was due to start at the Old Bailey on Tuesday but because of jury issues it is now due to begin on February 17.
