A 16-YEAR-OLD boy has died after being stabbed in a park at the weekend.

The teenager was attacked in West Ham Park in Forest Gate, east London, at around 5.30pm on Sunday.

He was treated by paramedics and an air ambulance team at the scene before being taken to hospital, where he died on Monday.

His family have been told but formal identification has not yet taken place.

Two teenagers, aged 14 and 16, who were arrested over the stabbing have been released on bail, while two other 16-year-olds remain in custody.

Metropolitan Police Borough Commander for Newham Chief Superintendent Simon Crick said: "This is a tragic and senseless murder of a young person in Newham.

"My thoughts at this time are with the victim's family and friends. As a father myself I can only imagine the pain they are suffering.

"This incident will send shockwaves through our communities and I appeal to the many people who will have been in the park at the time of the stabbing to come forward and speak to us about what they may have seen.

"We all have a responsibility to bring those who committed this senseless attack to justice."
