A 17-year-old who died after being stabbed in 'broad daylight' on London's Oxford Street has been named by police.

Jeremy Menesses, from South London, was rushed to a hospital in central London with a stab injury following a fight between a number of men on Saturday evening.

Police partially closed Oxford Street after emergency services responded to the scene just after 5:30pm to reports of an assault on Market Place at the junction with Oxford Street.

The teenager's next of kin have been informed by the police, who confirmed that a post-mortem examination would be carried out in due course.

Following the attack, three men, all aged 18, were later arrested after arriving to a south London hospital with stab injuries. They have since left hospital and are now in custody.
