On Sunday, 23 December, police arrested two males on suspicion of murder; [A] a 15-year-old male and [B] a 16-year-old male.

They both remain in custody at north London police stations at this time for questioning.

The Homicide and Major Crime Command are investigating led by Detective Chief Inspector Glen Lloyd.
