A man has been beaten to death in east London, police say. The victim was said to have been mobbed by a group of men and left badly injured. He was rushed to an east London hospital where he died from his injuries.
The police said that inquiries are under way to identify the man and a post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course. No arrests have been made so far as “officers retain an open mind regarding motive.”
“At this early stage, officers retain an open mind regarding motive,” a police spokesman said.
“A crime scene has been established and road closures are in place. Buses have been re-routed. Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command investigate supported by local officers.”
Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward to provide useful information to track the attackers of the man.
