“There was a party going on at the venue; there were lots of people there and I urge those people to come forward and pass on what they saw – no matter how insignificant it may seem.

“In addition, anyone who was in the area during the early hours of Thursday morning and noticed anything unusual or suspicions should contact my team without delay.”

Local policing commander Chief Superintendent Peter Gardner, said: “This is a senseless act of violence and we have needlessly lost another life at the point of blade. My thoughts and condolences are with the victim’s family at this desperately sad time. I’d like to thank the officers and members of the London Ambulance Service that were first on the scene and worked tirelessly to try and save the life of the victim.

“We understand the impact of violent crime on our communities and residents can expect to see an increased police presence in the area as part of reassurance patrols. There will be some disruption to the local area whilst crime scenes are in place as part of our investigation. Please do speak with officers about any concerns you may have, or information that you would like to provide.”
