He was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after 0200 BST.

A 17-year-old and an 18-year-old were detained on Thursday. An 18-year-old was arrested on Wednesday and all three remain in police custody.

The victim lived on the estate where he died.

A post-mortem examination showed he suffered fatal stab wounds.

Officers "would like to hear from anyone who witnessed this, or who may have seen this group in the local area", he said.
