Rider was targeted
A 14-YEAR-OLD boy riding a moped who was mown down by a car and then stabbed multiple times died in a targeted attack, police have said.
The teenager was murdered in an area notorious for drug dealing and blighted by so-called county lines gangs that are known to exploit children.
Chief Superintendent Richard Tucker said the age of the victim “beggars belief”. The boy was rammed off the moped by a black Mercedes on Tuesday in Bickley Road, Leyton, east London.
Flowers left at the scene in Leyton where a boy died
