Police have cordoned off an area near The Brewery after a 20-year-old man was murdered at the shopping centre yesterday.

Officers were seen near Thomas England House, Waterloo Gardens, Romford, not long after they were called to reports of a stabbing in The Brewery car park at 4.35pm.

A 19-year-old man, a 17-year-old boy, a 15-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy have been arrested on suspicion of murder and were taken to separate police stations.

A police spokesman said: “It is a crime scene and that is why there is a police presence.

“It was an area of interest to detectives who felt it was necessary to cordon it off, as it is relation to the murder in Romford.”
