Detective Chief Inspector Neil John, leading the investigation, said: “This attack happened in broad daylight and we believe there are people out there who know what happened.

“This was a sustained attack which has led to a boy aged just 15 losing his life.

“We are determined to find the individual responsible for this murder and we believe he fled the scene on a yellow bicycle which was later found abandoned nearby in an alleyway.

“We would urge anyone with dashcam footage which may show the attacker or the incident itself to come forward.”

The teen’s family are aware and a post-mortem examination is set for next week.

Homicide detectives are probing the murder and have urged the public to help.

Three men, aged 20, 24 and 17, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder on Friday evening, as well as a 21-year old man in the early hours of Saturday.

All four have been released with no further action being taken.

The death is the latest in a series of violent deaths on London’s streets this year.

Shocking figures revealed knife crime in England and Wales has soared to a record high, with 43,000 offences last year.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has pledged 20,000 new police officers across England and Wales over the next three years.

He has also promised to extended police stop and search powers to tackle the growing knife crime menace.
