The shocking death toll of teenagers stabbed and shot to death in London has risen to 15, three months after Elijah Dornelly was killed in Walthamstow.

He became the ninth teenager killed in London this year when he was fatally stabbed in Walthamstow High Street late on Sunday, May 7.

Elijah was walking home with a friend from an anti-knife rally before his attackers pounced on him and made off on bicycles.

In just three months another six young men have found the same fate, with two teenagers losing their lives in 24 hours on Friday (August 8).

The disturbing toll shows the results of both gun and knife crime soaring in the capital.

In April, Scotland Yard recorded a surge of 51 per cent in gun crime and a 34 per cent rise in knife crime in Waltham Forest.
