Three more teenagers arrested over the fatal stabbing of a 15-year-old boy in north London have been bailed.

Negus McClean was stabbed several times after being chased by about a dozen youths on mountain bikes in Westminster Road, Edmonton, last Sunday.

Two boys, aged 14 and 16, have been bailed to return to an east London police station on 10 May. A 17-year-old boy was bailed to return on 18 April.

Earlier this week four others were arrested over the killing and bailed.

Protect brother

Two men, aged 18 and 20, and a 14-year-old boy were bailed to return to a north London police station on 6 May. A 16-year old boy was bailed to return to the police station on 18 April.

Negus, from Edmonton, was taken to Royal London Hospital suffering stab wounds to the chest and thigh but died later that night.

A post-mortem gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the heart.

His family have said he was stabbed as he tried to protect his younger brother.

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