Teenagers die after falling from a sixth floor balcony

Two teenagers have died after falling from a balcony at at block of flats in south east London. Police say an 18-year-old man and 19-year-old woman, died at the scene in Wharf Street in Deptford after falling from the sixth floor of Knights Tower.

This appears to be a tragic accident and our thoughts go out to the families and those that knew them. They were at a party in the block when this tragedy occurred. I would urge any witnesses to make contact with detectives.

Detective: 'Key member' of online phishing gang jailed

Detectives said raids in London and Manchester led to jail time for a "key member" of an online phishing gang which targeted students across the UK.

My officers worked doggedly to secure Onikoyi’s conviction. They examined numerous leads to identify members of this phishing gang, of which Onikoyi was a key member.

He played a significant role in the scam by systematically targeting British students and UK financial institutions in order to steal large amounts of money that were then dispersed across numerous bank accounts.

We've had a number of bank accounts and properties connected to Onikoyi restrained under the Proceeds of Crime Act. This is now subject to a financial investigation.

– Detective Chief Inspector Jason Tunn, of the MPS Cyber Crime Unit.
