A 16-year-old boy arrested on suspicion of murder after a 17-year-old's body was found in a burnt-out car in south-east London has been bailed.

Samuel Ogunro's body was found by firefighters in a silver Rover on Jowett Street in Peckham on Tuesday.

He died of a bullet wound to the head before the body was placed in the car. Police believe the car may have been on the street for up to two weeks.

The boy of 16 has been bailed to return for inquiries in mid June.
