He was also known as 'Nana Banger' and was friends with Manchester United midfielder Timothy Fosu-Mensah. Elyon was stabbed outside a flat in Stamford Hill in the early hours of Saturday.

A 17-year-old boy was also stabbed and a 24-year-old man was injured.

Police have arrested two teenagers, aged 16, and two men aged 28 and 29 on suspicion of murder while an 18-year-old was arrested on suspicion of affray.

We have been working hard this weekend to find out what happened at the party and the events that led to Elyon’s murder in the early hours of Saturday.

We have arrested four men but we still need the public’s help.

We believe there were more than 200 young people at the party which began on Friday evening and we are need to speak to everyone who was there.

Even if you didn’t witness the assaults, you may have some information that can help us determine how Elyon tragically lost his life.
