A 31-year-old man and a 23-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of murder and both bailed to until late September, pending further enquiries.

Detectives are keeping an open mind as regards any motive at this stage and are appealing for any witnesses to the incident to come forward.

The officer leading the investigation, Detective Chief Inspector Larry Smith of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “Although two men have been arrested, I believe there are suspects outstanding and more witnesses with whom we need to speak.

“I am grateful to the many people who have come forward, but I still need to hear from anyone who saw an altercation at York Hall on July 29 and, in particular, anyone who took footage at the venue that Friday night.”

Anyone with information should call the incident room on 020 8345 3715 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
