Police investigating the fatal stabbing of a teenager have arrested three men. The 19-year-old is the 28th teenager to meet a violent death in Greater London this year.

The man, who has not been named, was killed after an altercation with a group of men in the early hours of Saturday morning in Ilford. A boy, aged 17, also suffered stab wounds in the incident. He is in a serious but stable condition in hospital. Two men, aged 23 and 24, were arrested after the stabbing. A 21-year-old man was also arrested in Ilford and taken to an east London police station for questioning.

Detective Chief Inspector John MacDonald from Scotland Yard's homicide and serious crime command said: "I am appealing for anyone who may have been in the Ilford High Road or Clements Road area to contact police. I am keen to speak to a young female who may have had some interaction with the suspects prior to the attack."
