A seventh man has been arrested in connection with the murder of the head doorman of the Mayfair Club.

Bogdan Paduret, 29, who was also known as Tony, was shot in the head as he sat in his car outside his home in Finchley, north London, last November.

Police said a motorcyclist pulled up to the car and the pillion passenger fired four shots into it.

The latest arrest was made by officers from the Metropolitan Police at Ipswich railway station.

Earlier on Wednesday, officers raided eight addresses across London, arresting six people.

Det Ch Insp Jacqueline Sebire said: "This was a cold-blooded and planned murder.

"Mr Paduret was without doubt targeted."

The raids took place at addresses and businesses in Limehouse, Ilford and Whitechapel, all in east London; Hounslow in the west of the capital and Friern Barnet to the north of the city.
