Police have arrested three teenagers on suspicion of the murder of a 15-year-old boy in north London.

Two boys aged 17 and a third aged 16 were arrested and taken into custody in east London over the stabbing of Negus McClean.

Negus, from Edmonton, was stabbed in the chest and thigh in Westminster Road, Edmonton, on 10 April.

Nine males, aged between 14 and 20, have already been arrested and bailed during the investigation.

After he was found, Negus, was taken to the Royal London Hospital but died later that night. A post-mortem examination showed the cause of death as a stab wound to the heart.

It is believed that about 13 young men, thought to be on bicycles, chased Negus before the murder.

He was the fourth teenager to be stabbed to death in London this year.
