A teenager stabbed to death in central London has been named as the cousin of another murder victim by police.

Police found Ahmed Beker, 19, bleeding from knife wounds on Paddington Green, Westminster, at 21.15 GMT on Friday.

Despite treatment, he was pronounced dead at the scene. No arrests have been made.

Police believed Mr Beker is the cousin of Yousef Beker - a 17-year-old boy killed in a fight on Edgware Road in September 2019.

A Section 60 order is in place granting police additional stop and search powers in the area until 14.00 on Sunday.

A post-mortem examination is due to take place at Westminster Mortuary on Sunday.

Police said Mr Beker lived in the area.
