A 15-year-old boy has been stabbed to death in a large fight after a birthday party attended by up to 100 youths in east London.

Metropolitan Police officers were called to a community centre in Romford on Saturday night after fighting broke out as youngsters left the event.

The teenage boy was found with knife wounds and died at the scene.

Three male teenagers were arrested on suspicion of murder and taken for questioning at separate police stations in east London, Scotland Yard said.

Detective Sergeant Gurj Singh said: “Response officers who attended the initial calls were confronted with up to 100 youths leaving a birthday party gathering at a community centre.

“There appeared to be fighting and tragically a teenager has been found with fatal injuries.”

The Met said a bus driver aged in his 50s was also treated for a head injury at the scene.

The boy’s next of kin have been informed, although his identity has not been released.

This adds to the devastating spate of knife crime across East Anglia this month.

Just yesterday, a man in his 40s was stabbed to death in Norwich.

Another man in his 40s was fatally stabbed in Chelmsford on Friday – just weeks after a teenager was stabbed in the town centre.
