Three teenage boys have been arrested on suspicion of murdering a 17-year-old.

Folajimi Orebiyi was fatally stabbed near Portobello market in west London.

He bled to death on Sunday night outside La Cave à Fromage on the well-known market street.

Two 16-year-old boys were arrested on Monday and questioned at separate police stations in central London. A third boy, aged 15, was held earlier in the day and remains in custody, according to Scotland Yard.

Police were called to the scene at 8.45pm on Sunday. Officers and paramedics worked to save Folajimi, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses reported he was chased by a group of youths on bikes after a fight began on a council estate nearby. They said the 17-year-old was stabbed in the neck.

Mr Orebiyi had finished his GCSEs at Holland Park School and was reportedly studying for his A-levels at Chelsea Academy.

A post-mortem examination was due to take place on Tuesday
