He becomes the sixth person to be fatally stabbed in the country in the space of a week.

In a statement, Scotland Yard said: "A male, aged in his late teens, was found with stab injuries to the chest. The injured male was taken to a central London hospital where he sadly died a short time later.

"Next of kin have been informed. At this early stage there have been no arrests."

It comes after a 37-year-old man found with serious stab injuries in Soho in central London over the weekend died in hospital on Wednesday evening.

Before the Soho victim's death, a 34-year-old man had been charged with attempted murder over the incident and another stabbing of a teenager but police say prosecutors will review the charge.

It is thought he collapsed in the street after being attacked at a nearby property, said detectives, who also believe Mr Martinez knew his attacker.

The killing is not being treated as gang-related.
