London Police are looking for two men seen running away after a 15-year-old boy was stabbed to death in a London street in the latest teenage killing to hit the British capital.

I cannot imagine what they are going through. It's a very sad day.

—Detective Chief Inspector Ian Stevenson

The victim, Adam Regis, from Plaistow, east London, collapsed on the pavement before horrified witnesses on Saturday evening.

Witnesses saw two young black men, casually dressed and wearing white Nike trainers, running away after the boy was stabbed.

A post mortem released today showed that Regis died from a single stab wound to the chest and abdomen.
