The man was taken to a East London hospital. He was pronounced dead at 7.53am.

The Metropolitan Police state: “Enquiries are underway to trace next of kin.

    Oh my god how terrible my thoughts are with the victims family and friends. When are these needless and totally pointless loss of lives going to stop.

    They are totally pointless and needless loss of lives. There is no need or this kind of behaviour and certainly no excuse for this behaviour or using knives.

    I live on a street off Orchard Road, Mount Pleasant Place. We are cordonned off and cannot leave our estate. This is shocking especially with it being on my doorstep. I can only see anther young life taken, I feel for the family of this man and my prayers are with them. However an important fact is being overlooked, this young man was not stabbed to death by a knife, he had a broken Budweiser bottle sticking out of his neck so it wasn’t a knife crime. That does not make the murder any less terrible, just that it is not another knife crime statistic.
    Forensics are still working here and the cordons are still in place as of 10:50am 29/10/20.

    Because of the heading we just thought it was another stabbing so sorry about that Local Resident. Still another pointless and unnecessary lost of life.
