The family of a young man who was knifed to death by a mob of youths in north London have urged the parents of his killers to contact police a year on from his murder.

Police believe Andrew Jaipaul was set upon by between 12 and 20 young men in Holloway, on the evening of June 26 last year.

Paramedics were called to the vicinity of Andover House in Andover Road where the 21-year-old was found but pronounced him dead at the scene. A post mortem examination concluded he died from multiple stab wounds.

A total of 18 suspects arrested on suspicion of murder are due to answer bail next month. Police are yet to charge anyone in connection with the incident.
