Metropolitan Police says his family continue to be supported by specialist officers.

His mother described her son as her “king” and said that her love for him would continue “forever”.

She said: “That's not something I wish on any mother. But today I know that the Lord knows best despite the pain me, your stepdad, brothers and sister, and extended family are feeling.

“Just remember that you are loved, was loved, and forever love continues. My one and only son Tyler.

"You are with the Lord until that faithful day. Love you always."

Another family member told police: “You touched so many hearts and for that reason your name will always live on.

“The good die young but Tye you didn't deserve this, you deserved to accomplish everything you wanted but we will make sure your legacy lives on. Love you T."
