A fourth man has been arrested in connection with the death of a man after an attack in Lewisham.

The 24-year-old was detained yesterday and taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody.

Thierry Christian-Gnanakumar, 22, from Catford, died in the early hours of November 11 after a disturbance outside Lewisham Library in High Street.

Police believe he was assaulted by a group of men. A post-mortem examination gave cause of death as severe blunt force trauma to the head and face.

Three men were arrested in connection with the incident and were bailed to a date this month.
