Arrests Made Over Fatal Stabbing

Three men have been arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of a teenager in east London earlier this year.

Godwin Lawson, a 17-year-old footballer from Enfield, north London, died after he was stabbed in Stamford Hill on 27 March.

Two other men, aged 18 and 20, were also stabbed during the incident.

Three men, aged 19, 20 and 21, were arrested on Tuesday and are due to be questioned by officers.
