Police have released CCTV images of two people they want to speak to in connection with the murder of a teenager in Ilford.

Kelvin Chibueze was found lying injured in the car park off Thompson Close, Ilford, in the early hours of August 15.

He died later that day in the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel of a stab wound to the chest.

It is believed he had earlier been at a party in High Road.

Now police want help in finding two people in CCTV images captured close to the scene of the incident.

The first image was taken inside the Costcutter store in High Road.

The man pictured is described as black, aged around 20, between 5ft 8in and 5ft 10in tall, of heavy build and with short, dark hair.

He was smartly dressed in a blue jacket, tan-coloured trousers, a blue jumper with white stripes and dark-coloured trainers with white edging.

The second CCTV image was captured outside the same Costcutter store.

The man pictured is described as black, in his early 20s, between 5ft 8in and 5ft 10in tall, of thin build and with short, dark hair.

He was wearing a grey hooded top with light-coloured trousers and trainers.
