A 15-year-old girl convinced a gang of "teenage vigilantes" to lure and kill a lorry driver on the mistaken belief he was a paedophile, a court has heard. Darren Kelly was stabbed to death near his home in Pitsea, Essex, last October. Prosecutors said there is no evidence the 42-year-old was a paedophile with detectives finding online conversations where it was suggested he was looking for a partner aged over 45.
