I’d like to reassure people that we do not believe this was a random attack and that Jamie knew his attackers.

“We are still carrying our forensic work at a second scene at Bevois Mews off Earls Road and this may take sometime.

"We are also carrying house to house enquiries in the area.

“I believe Jamie’s body was probably moved to the site where he was found in a domestic wheelie bin.

“I would ask anyone who did see this to contact the Operation Waterloo team at Hulse Road."
