Tributes have been paid to a 19-year-old man from Plaistow who died after being stabbed in Essex.

He has been named locally as Nico Ramsay, who lived with his family in Eastern Road.

Nico is said to be one of five children and the younger brother of Rinse FM DJ Marcus Nasty, who also owns underground bass radio station Nasty.FM.

Another brother, Theo Junior Ramsay, who also goes by the artist name of Lil Nasty, updated his Facebook profile picture on Friday with an image that appears to be that of Nico.

The picture has since received 191 likes and numerous messages of condolence.
