TWO men have been arrested after one teenager was killed and two were injured when they were stabbed in Erith yesterday (January 5).

The youth was pronounced dead when police arrived at a third floor flat in Verona House, Waterhead Close, at 3am yesterday (January 5).

Two other boys, who are believed to be in their mid to late teens, were taken to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel suffering stab wounds.

One youth has since been discharged and one remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The arrested men, who are both in their 20s, are in custody at a south London police station.

The dead teenager has not been identified and a post-mortem has yet to be arranged.

Police are investigating the circumstances of the killing and are keeping an open mind about motive.

However it is believed the youths were stabbed following an argument with a suspect or suspects who then left the flat.

Anyone with information about the incident should call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
