A 16-year-old boy has been arrested over the murder of a fellow teenager in south London.

Jay Hughes, 15, was stabbed near a chicken shop in Bellingham, south-east London, on 1 November and died in hospital three hours later.

The cause of his death was a single stab wound to the heart.

In December another boy aged 17 was charged with Jay's murder and is due to stand trial at a later date.

In the same month, a 21-year-old woman was also arrested on suspicion of murder and later released under investigation.

The arrested 16-year-old was taken into custody and also released under investigation.

At the time of the killing, Jay's childhood friend Tayla Ann Warwick, 19, said he was a "loving and thoughtful" boy who had loved roller skating and riding his bike.
