A man has been arrested on suspicion of shooting two men dead outside a tower block in north London.

Lee Wallace, 25, and Jayson Hassan, 28, were found outside Strang House in Britannia Row, Islington, on 9 November.

Mr Wallace, of Broadway, in Loughton, Essex, died at the scene and Mr Hassan died in hospital the following day.

A 41-year-old man was arrested and is being questioned at an east London police station.

Another man, 27, was arrested over the weekend but released on police bail without charge.

Officers believe the victims were approached by two men who opened fire before escaping on foot.
