A 19-year-old Italian man was found seriously injured and taken to King's College Hospital, in south London, where he later died.

Seven men were arrested on suspicion of murder and one has been bailed.

The 45-year-old man was released on bail until 16 December.

Officers now have until Wednesday evening to question the suspects.

The victims's family have been informed and are travelling to Kent from Italy.
