Danny O’Shea murder: Arrests made at Heathrow Airport

Two people were arrested at Heathrow Airport this morning in connection with the fatal stabbing of Custom House teenager Danny O’Shea.

Two men, aged 33 and 39, were detained on arrival from a flight from the USA. They are currently in custody at an east London police station.

A third man was arrested on suspicion of murder on January 21 - bringing the total number of arrests to 11. He has since been bailed until March.

Danny, 18, was killed yards from his home in Gill Avenue, Custom House, on December 2 last year.

Police believe he may have been chased by a group of men just before the attack. Officers are still seeking information about a white Ford Transit, seen in the area in the hours before the murder.

The vehicle has red and blue lettering on it and the words ‘self-drive hire’.
