Police have arrested two men on suspicion of murder after a Bethnal Green man was shot to death in Islington earlier this month.

A 27-year-old and a 41-year-old were arrested on November 19 and must return to an east London police station in December over the double murder of Jayson Hassan, 28, of Horatio Street and Lee Wallace, 25, of Broadway, Loughton.

Mr Hassan was found with gunshot wounds following reports of a shooting outside Strang House in Britannia Row on November 9.

Police were called at approximately 4.30am and Mr Hassan was taken to an east London hospital but died in the early hours of the following morning.

Mr Wallace was pronounced dead at the scene at 5.07am.
