Violent crime has claimed two lives in Newham since the start of the year.

Of the more than 50 people killed in the capital, around a sixth have taken place in east London since January 1.

View our interactive map of the ten people killed in the boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Newham, Redbridge and Tower Hamlets in 2018.

February is the bloodiest most so far with four deaths, including: Seyed Khan, 49, found in Ilford Cemetery; Hasan Oczan, 19; in Abbey Road, Barking; Saeeda Hussain, 54, in Staines Road, Ilford; and Promise Nkenda, 17, in Goldwing Close, Newham.

Stabbing is the most common cause of death, with six cases.

One man was shot dead by police in Collier Row, Romford.

The majority of victims are men and four of those killed were under the age of 25.

This map will be updated throughout the year.
