Police have launched murder investigations after two teenage boys were stabbed to death in separate incidents in London within an hour of each other.

A 15-year-old boy was found fatally injured just after 7pm last night in Croydon.

And a 16-year-old boy died after a stabbing a few miles away in west London.

30 teenagers have been killed in the capital this year – the highest figure since 2008.
