A fundraising page for the family of a teenager murdered at East Croydon station has raised more than £1,000 in a day.

Louis Johnson, 16, died after he was stabbed at the station on January 27 in a violent attack that lasted 40 seconds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

An outpouring of support quickly followed and this week a GoFundMe page was set up to help Louis' family.

Campaign organisers Emma Miles and Casey Ironmonger wrote on the page: "On Monday 27th January 2020, 16-year-old Louis Johnson was robbed of his most valuable and prized possession: his life.

"He was stabbed and innocently murdered in an unprovoked attack at approximately 4.36pm in East Croydon train station.

"His family are beyond devastated at the loss of their funniest, wittiest, most animated "Mummy's boy."
