Police have arrested two men in connection with the fatal stabbing of a teenager yesterday in the stairwell of a block of flats in Deptford, southeast London.

The 18-year-old, who was pronounced dead at the scene in Shearwater Court, Abinger Grove, is the sixth teenager to have been stabbed to death in the capital this year. One teenager has died from gunshot wounds.

A 20-year-old and an 18-year-old have been arrested in connection with the incident and a murder inquiry launched, the Metropolitan police said.

Next of kin have been informed but formal identification has yet to take place, they said.

A post mortem is due to take place later today.
