Victims in day of stabbings named


Police said Adnan Patel had been chased by a gang in Leyton

Four men stabbed to death in separate knife attacks in London in a single day have been named by police.

Melvin Bryan, 18, was fatally stabbed during a fight in a bedsit in Edmonton, north London, on Thursday.

Three hours later Adnan Patel, 20, died of stab wounds after a gang chased him in Leyton, east London.

And Yusufu Miiro, 20, was attacked in a stairwell in Walthamstow. Earlier Genadijs Jaronis, 42, was found fatally wounded in a squat in Tottenham.

No-one has been charged in connection with the killings.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown said he would announce measures to tackle knife crime next week following the “shocking and tragic” spate of stabbings.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair was called in for talks with Mr Brown at his official residence at Chequers on Saturday, Downing Street said.

A spokesman said that they had discussed the recent spate of stabbings in London, as well the powers available to police for tackling knife crime.
