Boy, 16, arrested after 20-year-old fatally stabbed in north London

A teenage boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder and violent disorder after a fatal stabbing in north London.

Officers were called to Cavendish Road in Edmonton on Wednesday at around 6.30pm to reports of a fight between men armed with baseball bats.

A 20-year-old was found at the scene with stab wounds and was later pronounced dead, with the total number of murder investigations launched in London this year reaching at least 81.

The arrested boy, aged 16, has been taken to hospital for treatment and will be questioned later, Scotland Yard said.

"At this early stage officers retain an open mind as to motive," a force spokesman said.

Crime scenes remained open in nearby Brettenham Road and Cameron Close and officers have informed the man's next of kin, he added.

Anyone with information should contact 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
