A murder probe has been launched by detectives to determine the circumstances around the incident.

A 24-year-old man has since been arrested on suspicion of Jack’s murder and taken into custody after he attended an east London police station.

Jack’s mum had earlier paid him a tribute calling him a “loving” and “funny” son. She said: “His smile was amazing - he was loving, funny, giving of his time and loved being Uncle Jack to his niece and two nephews best of all.

"He is my son, my blue-eyed boy and will live in me until the day I die”.
