A 26-year-old man who died after being stabbed in Hackney Wick has been identified, as police appeal for information and witnesses. 

Officers were called at around 4.30am this morning (February 11) after two men presented themselves at an east London hospital with stab injuries. 

It was established that both men were stabbed in the area of White Post Lane, with spots of blood later photographed near the scene.

One of the men, aged 26, sadly died in hospital, while the other has been discharged. 

The man who died has now been identified as Trei Daley, from Bromley. His family have been informed. 

A post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course. 

Police launched an urgent investigation, led by DCI Jim Eastwood of the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime Command, with the area around White Post Lane cordoned off as police officers and forensic officers worked the scene.

DCI Eastwood said: “Firstly, I want to express my most sincere sympathies to Trei’s family. They are being supported by specialist officers, and a dedicated team of detectives will be doing everything possible to bring to justice whoever was responsible for this tragic killing. 

“Our enquiries have established that Trei was stabbed near to the Colour Factory nightclub in Queen’s Yard, which is just off White Post Lane in Hackney Wick. 

“This area was still busy at around 4am to 4.30am on Saturday morning. Were you there? Did you witness some sort of fight or confrontation? Did you see or hear anything suspicious? 

“Officers have already spoken with a number of people who were in the area, and I am grateful for their assistance. But there will be others who saw or heard something, and I need those people to come forward and speak with detectives.” 

There have been no arrests at this early stage.
