The first images of Lejean Richards have emerged after the teenager was murdered near his home in Battersea.

Lejean, 19, was found with stab wounds on Tuesday night (February 5) at Wolsey Close.

Despite the best efforts of paramedics, he died at the scene.

Two men, aged 19 and 27, were arrested after handing themselves in at the hospital.

His mother paid tribute to him, describing him as a "lovely son" who was "turning his life around".

A witness said she saw him being carried to his mother's flat last night.

She said: "His two friends brought him down that alleyway and they were blowing in his mouth.

"They carried him down there. And all the police came and they were on the floor pumping on his chest. There were dozens of people."

Floral tributes have been laid at the door of Lavern's best friend's home, the closest spot outside the police cordon.
