Five teenagers from Ilford have been charged with the murder of an 18-year-old in Chadwell Heath.

Lyndon Davis was pronounced dead in hospital in March after being found in Nash Road suffering from a stab injury.

Five boys were today (Monday) charged in connection with his death - one aged 15, one aged 16 and three 17-year-olds.

They are set to appear at Barkingside Youth Court tomorrow (Tuesday).

A 34-year-old man who was arrested during the early stages of the investigation into Lyndon’s death will have no further action taken against him.
