A teenage boy, 16, has lost his life after being stabbed to death in Hounslow.

London is now nearing a new record for teen murders in a single year.

The boy was found after suffering fatal stab wounds on Raleigh Road.

He's the 28th teen to die on the streets of the capital this year alone - that's only one away from the peak of 29 teenage killings in 2008.

The police said they received a call to get to Raleigh Road just after 9pm yesterday to reports of a stabbing incident.

Social media video shows officers fighting to save the boy’s life.

There have so far been no arrests made.
