A man has been charged with murdering a teenager who was stabbed to death outside a friend's 16th birthday party.

Calvin Tudor, 21, is accused of killing Che Labastide-Wellington, 17, in Kenton, north-west London.

Che, of Harrow, was knifed in the chest in an alley in Belvedere Way on Sunday.

Mr Tudor, of Kelly Close, Neasden, north-west London, was due before Barkingside Magistrates' Court on Friday. He is also charged with the attempted murder of a 16-year-old boy.

The 16-year-old was treated in hospital after being stabbed.

Police said a fight had broken out before the stabbings, after a group of youths had tried to gain entry to the party.

Che, an invited guest, was pronounced dead at about 01:30 GMT, an hour after he was stabbed.

A 19-year-old man who was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of murder has been bailed pending further enquires to a date in early January 2016, police said.

Two boys aged 15 and 16 who were arrested on suspicion of murder have been bailed until mid-December.

A third, aged 14, who was being held on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon, has been bailed to a date in early January.
