A MAN stabbed to death at an illegal rave in South London over the weekend has today been named as Jason Nyarko.

Officers were called to the industrial unit in Stockholm Road shortly before midnight after the man was knifed.

Despite the efforts of the emergency services, Jason was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

He added: "We know there is a large amount of video footage that was taken on the night. It is vital that we see this and I urge anyone with videos and photos to submit them to police by visiting this website.

"Likewise, if you were at the event and witnessed a fight inside the warehouse, or any other suspicious activity, we need to hear from you. No piece of information is too small or insignificant."
