21-year-old Ryan Williams and 20-year-old Donald Pemberton, who are both from St Budeaux, appeared before magistrates in the city to confirm their names, addresses and dates of birth.

They have been remanded in custody and will appear for a hearing at Exeter Crown Court on January 7th.

Police were called to attend The Kings Arms in Tamerton Foliot shortly after 1.30am on Thursday 1st January.

Tanis Bhandari from Tamerton Foliot was taken to Derriford Hospital by ambulance with serious injuries but was pronounced dead on arrival.

The other injured men were taken to Derriford Hospital. One of the men, aged 21 from Plymouth, remains in hospital in a critical but stable condition. The others have since been discharged.

Detective Inspector Gregg Dawe, Senior Investigating Officer, said: “An axe and knives have been recovered and searches are continuing in the Milford Lane area for any further knives that may have been used.
