Detectives have charged two people over the murder of Francois Kablan, a 19-year-old from south east London who was stabbed to death in the street on Wednesday, May 13.

Mr Kablan, from Bermondsey, was discovered with stab wounds on Great Dover Street in Southwark and was pronounced dead at the scene after officers were called to a street brawl at around 5:30pm.

The 19-year-old was a footballer for Harlow Town FC's reserve team, and has been described as a "wonderful person" whose energy and smile lit up the pitch.
