Neasden teen fights for life after Northampton nightclub crush
Police are appealing for more witnesses who were in the club where a Brent student was crushed to death to come forward.
Nabila Nanfuka, 22, of Yeats Close, Neasden, died on Wednesday inside Lava & Ignite nightclub in Northampton.
A spokeswoman from Northamptonshire Police said they need more people to come forward to piece together what happened that night.
She said: “There were lots of people who travelled to the club in coaches from London. We need more people to come forward.”
A 19-year-old woman, whose father is believed to live in Neasden, is fighting her life in hospital in Leicester following the ‘stampede’.
A 21-year-old woman, from New Cross, south-east London, is now conscious and appears to be showing signs of improvement at Northampton General Hospital.
Following a request from police, Northampton Borough Council suspended the club’s license yesterday.

Julie Seddon, the council’s director for environment and culture, said: “Northampton Borough Council’s licensing committee has held a summary review into the licence of lava and ignite.
“This was in response to an application made by Northamptonshire Police following an incident at the club earlier this week where a woman died.
“The licensing committee has decided that due to the severity of the incidents reported, the loss of life and the number of serious injuries, the only viable course of action is to suspend the premise’s licence.”
A full hearing will be heard in 28 days.
Ms Nanfuka went to Oliver Goldsmith Primary School, in Kingsbury, before attending John Kelly Girls’ School, in Neasden, and Preston Manor High School, in Wembley.
Before gaining a place at Northampton University, she studied a two-year BTEC course in Travel and Tourism at Southwark College.
