Three people, including a 14-year-old girl, have been released on bail following their arrest on suspicion of beating a man to death in an east London street.

The 58-year-old victim died following a fight in Stanhope Road, Dagenham, just before 13:00 GMT on Monday.

Police arrested the girl along with two males, aged 17 and 20, on suspicion of murder.

They have been bailed to a date in early February.

Detectives and forensics officers remained at the scene on Tuesday gathering evidence.

The victim's next of kin have been informed and a post-mortem examination is due to take place.
