A man who died after being shot in a north London cemetery has been named by police.

Ismail Tanrikulu was found with gunshot wounds by officers at Tottenham Cemetery just before 08:00 BST on Monday.

Despite treatment by the London Ambulance Service, the 22-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Met launched a murder investigation but said it was "keeping an open mind to the motive of this attack".

A post-mortem examination will take place on Friday.
