A 16-year-old boy found dead in a stairwell of a block of flats in Wandsworth after a house party has been named by police.

Peter Hagan was discovered on the ground floor of Albon House in Neville Gill Close, at 1.30am yesterday. He had suffered stab wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Metropolitan Police await formal identification but said they were satisfied the victim was Peter Hagan.

A post-mortem examination started yesterday and was due to resume later today.
