A fundraising page has been set up to help the family of a man stabbed to death in Poplar.

Gleb Stanislavovitch Zhebrovsky, also known as Gleb Stalnoy, died after being stabbed in Alton Street shortly before 2pm on Saturday, June 15.

The 34-year-old, who lived in Poplar, was originally from Russia and some of the money raised will be used to repatriate his body.

The fundraising page was set up by Gleb's friend Iuri Santos, who wrote: "Unfortunately Gleb does not have any immediate family in the country, therefore as his good friend I am trying to raise money for Gleb's mother Natalya, who lives in Ukraine and would often receive money from Gleb to support her in her retirement.

"Sadly, with the passing of Gleb his mother does not have any regular income."

Yasin Omar Amare, 28, of Pawleyne Close, Penge, has been charged with Gleb's murder.
