A fourth man has been charged with murder over the fatal stabbing of a teenager allegedly chased by a mob through a housing estate.

Momar Faye, 18, unemployed of no fixed abode, will appear in custody at Hendon Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, charged with the murder of 17-year-old Marcel Addai in Hoxton on Friday September 4, Scotland Yard said.

Faye was arrested on Sunday at an address in Basildon, Essex, and taken into custody police at a north London police station, where he was later charged.

Marcel was found with stab wounds on the St John's Estate in Hoxton, in the east London borough of Hackney, after police were called to reports of an assault.

Witnesses described him being chased by up to 15 people before he died.

The London Ambulance Service attended the scene but he was pronounced dead at 11.47pm.

His family said they had been left ''totally devastated'' by his death.

Three other people are charged with the murder - Sodiq Adebayo, 22, Akeem Gbadamosi, 21, and Eugene Ocran, 19.

Police said they are remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on dates to be confirmed.
