The family of a 17-year-old boy who was stabbed to death in south-east London has paid tribute to a beloved son, grandson and nephew.

Dogan Ismail, from Peckham, was attacked outside Latimer House in Walworth on Sunday afternoon. He died at the scene.

Police said Dogan and his brother were involved in a row with up to four males when he was stabbed.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a single stab wound.

In a statement, Dogan's family said: "Our beloved son, friend, cousin, nephew and grandson has been cruelly taken away from us."

They said words could not express how much they would miss him.

"We want justice for Dogan and his killer caught," the family said.

They appealed for anyone with information to tell the police.
