Horror as 16-year-old Nigerian teenage boy is stabbed to death in London street (photos)


A 16-year-old Nigerian teenage boy has been stabbed to death after being chased by a gang of youths on bicycles in Notting Hill, west London.  The 6th form boy who has been identified as  Fola Orebiyi, was attacked in Portobello Road at around 8.45pm last night, after witnesses said a fight had broken out nearby. He collapsed just two doors down from the shop unit which featured in the 1999 Hugh Grant film Notting Hill, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses said the boy had been chased into Portobello Road after a fight broke out on a neighbouring estate.
