The 18-year-old was found injured in Nash Road when police were called to reports of an attack at about 10.30pm on Wednesday.

Medics rushed him to an east London hospital, where he died less than two hours later.

While police are yet to formally identify him, his next of kin have been informed.

Detectives believe Lyndon, also known as Lynx, was chased by a group before being attacked.

One man was arrested earlier this week in connection with their investigation and later released on bail.

A post-mortem will be held in due course.
