Two more teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of murdering a 17-year-old youth whose body was discovered in a burning car in south London.

Samuel Ogunro's body was found after firefighters put out the blaze on Jowett Street, Peckham, on 2 June. He had died of a bullet wound to the head.

The boys, aged 16 and 17, arrested on Wednesday, remain in custody.

Three other youths, aged 16, 17, and 19, have been bailed after being arrested on suspicion of the murder.

Metropolitan Police said the silver Rover, number plate V683 DPN, might have been bought locally and had been parked at the scene for more than two weeks - except for a short period before the fire.

Two or three suspects were spotted running from the car while it was on fire, police added.
