Another 18-year-old was also stabbed. His injuries are not life threatening.

Police have arrested a 17-year-old. He is being questioned at a north-west London police station.

Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh is leading the investigation. He said:

We are doing everything we can to find those involved. What we know so far is that a fight broke out between males at the location and as a result this young man received fatal injuries. A second independent male, bravely tried to intervene to break up the fight and as a result was also stabbed.

We want to hear from anyone who was there so we can understand what happened prior to the murder taking place and events immediately afterwards. One male in currently in custody and is being interviewed.

Whilst we have made an arrest, and we are not seeking any other suspects; we urge anyone who has information on what took place to come forward. Do the right thing and call police with what you heard and saw. Equally if you captured footage of the incident on your mobile phone at any point of the incident, footage may have been shared, I need you to let me have the footage, please contact my team who are ready to take your call.

Also if you know of anyone who is carrying a knife, we want to hear from you. Frontline officers need your call.
