Riley was taken to hospital in a critical condition but died early yesterday. "This tragic development makes it even more important that anyone with information comes forward as a matter of urgency," Detective Chief Inspector Mick Norman said.

Police released CCTV footage of a man they wish to trace. He was shown running from Ms Fauvrelle's address shortly before police were called.

The Metropolitan Police said there had been 67 reported murders in London so far this year.
