TWO people have been arrested over the death of a 15-year-old boy found stabbed to death in a London park.

Deshuan James Tuitt was rushed to hospital after being discovered with knife wounds in Highbury Fields last Thursday.

Tragically he couldn't be saved and died shortly after.

Police have now arrested a 15-year-old boy on suspicion of murdering Deshaun.

A woman, 34, has also been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Witnesses previously revealed how the schoolboy was comforted by police as he lay dying on the ground.

Chloe Hadjimatheou said she saw a group of teens in the area shortly before the horror unfolded.

The 47-year-old added: "There was a group of us mums with our kids in the playground and I think we must have walked out just as it was happening.

"I didn't see the stabbing itself, I saw the young people running away and the guy on the ground. I didn't realise what was going on I didn't connect them at first, I thought he was drunk.

"Within five minutes a big police van came down and then another two unmarked cars, they cordoned off the whole thing and still there was no ambulance.
