A car used by a gang suspected of the murder of a 15-year-old boy outside his school has been found.

Zac Olumegbon, from Brixton Hill, south London, and a friend were ambushed by four young men at the gates of Park Campus School in West Norwood.

The green Nissan Almera was found in Holland Grove, Stockwell, south London, on Saturday night.

Detectives are asking for anyone who has recently seen the car, which had been stolen, to get in touch.

The officer leading the murder inquiry, Det Ch Insp John McFarlane, said the discovery of the car was a significant breakthrough.

"It was stolen from the Brixton area on 29 June," he said.

"We know it was used to transport the youths involved in the murder to the scene. We need to know its movements after it was stolen and after the murder."

Four teenage boys are still being questioned by detectives about the fatal attack on Friday morning.

The victim's friend escaped with minor injuries.

Seven male teenagers were arrested. Three have been since bailed, police said.
