Police have bailed three men arrested in connection with the killing of a young Tottenham rapper at an East End nightclub for a second time.

The men aged 27, 25, and 23 were arrested and bailed after the fatal stabbing of 23-year-old Kelvin Easton at the Boheme nightclub in Mile End Road in March.

They reported back to police stations on May 17 and were bailed for a second time to report to police again at the end of June.

No further action will be taken in relation to a 17-year-old boy who was also arrested following Kelvin’s killing.

Aspiring rapper and father-of-two Mr Easton - who performed as Smegz - was attacked by a group of men at the club and collapsed down a flight of stairs where he died despite the best efforts of paramedics.

On Saturday his mother Julie Easton spoke of her grief on a tribute page on the Gone Too Soon website.

She said: “I no they say that it gets eaiser in time but i dont really no bout that coz as time goes by i seem to miss you so much more i just carnt get passed it you are my boy and my rock and im finding it so very hard to move on.”

Police offered a reward of up to £20,000 for information about the murder last month.
