Wandsworth Tower Block Murder: Man Charged

A man has been charged with the stabbing murder of a 16-year-old in a stairwell at a tower block in southwest London.

Peter Hagan was pronounced dead on the ground floor of Albon House in Wandsworth at 1.30am on Sunday.

Romell Martin, 21, of Fairgreen Road, Thornton Heath, south London, will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Thursday charged with his murder.

Peter was believed to have attended a party in the tower block in Neville Gill Close before he was stabbed.

A post-mortem examination is yet to take place.

The Metropolitan Police said eight other people were bailed after being arrested over the murder.
