Det Ch Insp Neale Baldock, of the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “Ashley Latty went out that weekend with the sole intention of enjoying himself and his friends’ company – earlier that Saturday he had been a guest at a wedding party.

“He was set upon by a group of men who launched a vicious attack, inflicting severe injuries, which ultimately led to his death.

“We may not know for certain why this attack happened, but what we do know, is the number of families that have been torn apart by the senseless events of that morning.”

Damien Carnegie, 30, of Leytonstone and Daniel Agyeman, 24, of Thornton Heath, were cleared of all charges on Friday.

Aimee Penfold, 25, from Croydon, was also cleared of assisting an offender and perverting the course of justice.

Mr Latty died hours after he was stabbed outside a function at The Beaver Centre on Selinas Lane.

The 25-year-old had been stabbed twice in the back and three times in the chest, one of which entered his heart.
