A teenager was fatally stabbed at an 18th birthday party – on the same night he himself turned 19. Ziggy Worrell-Owusu was attacked while he was at the Basement Shisha Lounge in Ilford, north-east London in the early hours of Thursday.
He had gone to the bar in Goodmayes Road to celebrate a friend’s 18th birthday the night before, also his own birthday, but was stabbed during an altercation.
Paramedics took him to hospital but he was pronounced dead at 1.45am. A post-mortem examination found he died from a single stab wound.
Scotland Yard said while Mr Worrell-Owusu, from Hackney, has not been formally identified, his next of kin have been informed.
A Met spokesman said: ‘It has been established that Ziggy had attended an 18th birthday party with a group of his friends at the venue and there were approximately 100 people in attendance.
‘At some point during the evening an altercation occurred which led to Ziggy being stabbed.’
