A murder inquiry has been launched after a teenager died following a stabbing.

Police were called to reports of a fight at a block of flats in Brockley, south-east London on Thursday evening and found two 17-year-old boys with stab wounds.

Both boys were taken from Spalding House in Turnham Road to hospital where one died and another is in a stable condition.

Formal identification of the dead teen is yet to take place, but police said they believe they know who he is.
