Two people have been charged with murder over the stabbing of a 16-year-old boy in south London last week, police said.

Camron Smith, from Shrublands, was stabbed to death on the front door of his family home in Shrublands in Croydon on Thursday, July 1.

Metropolitan Police officers were called just before 1am to reports of a disturbance at a residential address on Bracken Avenue in Shrublands in Croydon.

A 16-year-old male was found inside the address suffering from stab wounds and despite the efforts of emergency services, he was pronounced dead just after 1.30am.

Police on Monday charged two males, an unnamed 15-year-old who was arrested in Brighton, East Sussex, and 18-year-old Romain La Pierre of Amber Grove, Cricklewood, with Camron's murder and an additional charge of robbery.

Both have been remanded in police custody and will appear at Bromley Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.

Police said investigations are ongoing and have urged anyone with information to call the incident room on 0208 721 4961, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
