A man whose remains were found in the garden of a house in south-east London on Sunday has been named by police.

Five people were arrested after 18-year-old Stephen Ojerinola's remains were found in Lynsted Garden, Eltham.

A post-mortem examination, which took place on Tuesday at Greenwich Mortuary, revealed he died from stab wounds.

Two men, one aged 35 and the other in his 40s, and two women, one in her 60s and the other in her 40s, are being held in custody on suspicion of murder.

Another woman, in her 40s, was bailed on Sunday to return later this month, pending further inquiries.

Excavation work at the address is likely to last a number of days, the Metropolitan Police said.

All five of those arrested were also detained on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

The four in custody are being held at a south London police station.
