In a joint statement, councillor Georgia Gould, leader of Camden Council and MP for Holborn and St Pancras Keir Starmer said: "We are devastated that a young life was lost in Camden last night. The victim was not a Camden resident but he was a 16 year old child in our borough and we are working with the police, his home borough and all involved in this case to understand how this happened.

"Camden community presence officers will be visiting the community to speak with residents, community groups and businesses to provide reassurance and support. Every time we lose a young life it causes deep pain for families and communities and is felt by all at the council. Through our youth safety taskforce we are working every day with schools, youth clubs, families, hospitals, young people and the broader community to stop this violence."

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting CAD8433 of August 12.
