The 53 year-old was stabbed to death on Friday night following an argument which began in a Forest Gate pub and spilled out on to the street.

Mr Coulson, 53, who lived in Beckton, was knifed near the Hudson Bay pub in Upton Lane at about 9.25pm.

Paramedics rushed him to The Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel where he was confirmed dead shortly after arrival.

They believe Mr Coulson was involved in an altercation with three black men earlier in the Hudson Bay.

The men made off on foot.
