Did you see it in the area or in the moments before or after Jeffrey was killed? If you did, or you have any other information about this car, my officers and I need to hear from you. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us, as you may hold a significant piece of information that could help our investigation and get justice for Jeffrey and his family.”

A post-mortem examination will be held in due course.

Jeffrey’s family, said: “Our beloved Jeffrey was killed on Wednesday morning in a senseless and violent attack.

“Understandably, we are distraught by the news and ask that you keep us all in your thoughts and prayers. We would also like to say a huge thank you to the family, police and wider community for all their support.”

The investigation is being led by homicide detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command.
