London’s year of violence has claimed its latest victim after an 18-year-old was stabbed to death in Camberwell.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding said: ‘This is a tragic incident which has resulted in yet another young person being fatally stabbed in London. 

‘We are appealing for anyone with information to come forward, we need to trace the moped and also the person who brought the victim to the scene, it’s important we establish where the victim initially received his injuries.
