A 17-year-old boy arrested on suspicion of murder was being questioned by police on Friday afternoon.

A third male, in his teens, was hailed by detectives for “bravely” trying to break up the fight that led up to Mr Sillah’s death.

He has since been discharged from hospital after receiving treatment for a non-life threatening stab wound.

Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, leading the murder investigation for the Metropolitan Police, said Mr Sillah’s family had been left “absolutely broken” by their loss.

Mr McHugh said: “This is an absolute tragedy. A young man with his whole life ahead of him has been fatally attacked and his family are absolutely devastated.

“We are doing everything we can to find those involved. What we know so far is that a fight broke out between males at the location and as a result this young man received fatal injuries. A second independent male bravely tried to intervene to break up the fight and as a result was also stabbed.
