The latest deadly stabbing in London brings the number of teen killings to 28 in the capital so far this year.

It overtakes the 27 deaths seen in 2017, which had been the highest in recent years, and is one off the grim record of 29 in 2008.

With a month still to go, there will be inevitable fears this horrific tally could be matched or exceeded.
