The 15-year-old boy who was stabbed to death after a “large fight” outside a community centre on Saturday has been locally named as Jordan Douherty.

The boy from Chafford Hundred was killed after 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.

A Met Police spokesman confirmed a 15-year-old boy was found with stab wounds and although he was treated at the scene by paramedics, he was pronounced dead a short while later.

He is the youngest victim to be fatally stabbed in London this year.

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.

Det Sgt Gurj Singh said: “I would like to directly appeal to those present to contact police about what they saw and heard to help my team build a clearer picture of what took place.

“Equally, if you have video footage or images of the violent aftermath to the party, we need to hear from you.”
