A 14-year-old boy has been stabbed to death by attackers who knocked him off a moped, in what police believe was a targeted attack.
The wounded teenager was found in Bickley Road, Leyton, in Waltham Forest, at 18:30 GMT on Monday.
Detectives believe the moped had been involved in a crash with a car, after which three men got out the vehicle, stabbed the teenager and drove off.
He died at the scene. No arrests have been made and a cordon is in place.
The boy is believed to be the youngest victim to die on London’s streets in the last year. There were 132 homicides in 2018, the highest total since 2008. Read more
