A teenage boy has died after he was stabbed to death in the late-night.

The boy, 16, was pronounced dead at the scene after police were called to Kendal Gardens in Edmonton on Sunday (October 1) at 11.27pm.

His family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

A reader who called the Enfield Independent said there had been police and ambulance sirens in Kendal Avenue last night and there were still police vehicles in the area.

They said it was "normally a quiet area" and they were sad to see apparent knife crime in the neighbourhood.

The Metropolitan Police says a post-mortem examination and formal identification will take place in due course.

A crime scene remains in place in Kendal Gardens as investigations into the incident continue.

Detective Chief Superintendent Caroline Haines, the senior officer responsible for the Met’s North Area BCU, said: “I thank local people for their patience as police have worked through the night. They will continue to see a police presence and ongoing activity in their neighbourhood in the coming days, and I encourage people in the community to speak with those officers if they have any information or concerns that they wish to share.

“My thoughts and most sincere sympathies are with the family and friends of the victim. The family will be supported by dedicated police officers throughout the unimaginably difficult days and months ahead.

“We will be there for them, and I can assure them that skilled and tenacious detectives will be working to bring to justice whoever was responsible for this terrible crime.”

No arrests have been made at this stage.

Any witnesses or anyone with information who are yet to speak with police are asked to call 101, referencing 7767/01oct.
