A man has been charged with murder following the death of a 54 year-old in Leatherhead earlier this week.

Phillip Bagwell’s body was found on Wednesday morning (10 June).

Daniel George Hopper - known locally as Daniel Styles - aged 32, of Clare Crescent in Leatherhead, was charged in the early hours of this morning and will appear at Guildford magistrates court today (13 June).

A second man, also arrested in connection with the incident, was released yesterday without charge.

Surrey Police has said officers remain in the local area to provide reassurance to the community.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Chief Inspector Chris Friday said:

"I am grateful to the local community for their cooperation and patience whilst we carry out this investigation. 

"I also ask that you respect the privacy of Phillip Bagwell’s family at this difficult time for them."
