THREE teenagers were appearing in court this-morning charged with the murder of 20-year-old David Cauchi-Lechmere who died in East London after a street clash.

David’s family were at his bedside when he died at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel on Saturday afternoon.

He was found injured in the street following a house party in Beckton 13 hours earlier at 3am and brought by ambulance to the hospital.

Those charged with his murder are a 17-year-old juvenile and two 18-year-olds, Lewis Wilson and Losimba Yfeko, both from Beckton.

They were appearing in custody today (July 14) at Stratford Magistrates’ Court.

Two others aged 19 and 20 have been bailed to return to police later this month, pending further enquiries.
