A boy aged 19 has today been stabbed to death in Ilford, east London. The unidentified youth is the 28th teenage boy to be murdered in London this year.

It's been six weeks since the last teenage victim, Craig Steven Marshall, was stabbed to death in west London. That was an extended lull in the violence, following the spate of murders earlier in the year, with a boy lost every week or fortnight. Four boys were knifed in August alone.

More details on this story as they come in.

UPDATE: 10/11/08. The boy has now been identified as Mauritian-born Nabeer Bakurally.
