FOUR men have been found guilty of murdering a 36-year-old man in a brutal vigilante-style attack.

Bill Saunders, Marvin Service, Kelvin Horlock and Trevor Lees were convicted of murder at Maidstone Crown Court on Wednesday.

Horlock, 29, of Hatfield Road, Strood; Service, 33, of Brandon Street, Gravesend; Trevor Lees, 35, of London Road, Northfleet, and Bill Saunders, 27, of Shamrock Road, Gravesend, were each found guilty of murder.
