“My officers will do all they to find the person or persons responsible.

“A number of people have spoken to us already, but there are more who have yet to come forward. I continue to urge anyone with information to speak to us about what you know – it could prove crucial in bringing Keane’s family justice.”

Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove, responsible for local policing in Lambeth and Southwark, added: “I am shocked and saddened by the senseless loss of another young life to knife crime.
