A fundraising page has been set up in memory of the 15-year-old who was stabbed to death on Saturday night.

Jordan Douherty, from Chafford Hundred, was found with stab wounds by police after a “large fight” took place following a birthday party at the North Romford Community Centre, Clockhouse Lane, Collier Row, on Saturday, June 23, at 9.05pm.

Police and the London Ambulance Service attended the scene and were confronted by around 100 young people.

He was treated by paramedics at the scene but died shortly after.

A fundraising page has been set up to help raise £5,000 for his grieving family.

So far, £280 has been raised.

On the page it says: “Jordan’s life was sadly taken from us, he was stabbed and killed whilst at a party.

“He was only 15-years-old and had so much more to give.

“Jordan was very talented and everyone knew it. My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.

“Please donate to help raise money for his family and help them through this struggle.

“May god bless Jordan’s friends and family.

“Rest in perfect peace, fly high and sleep tight.”

Three teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of murder and have been taken to separate east London police stations for questioning.

A bus driver aged in his fifties was also treated for a head injury at the scene, but there are no other reports of injuries.
