He was taken to a central London hospital but died a short time later, police said. His next of kin have been informed.

He is believed to be the 15th teenager to have been fatally stabbed in London this year. Anyone with information is urged to contact the force.

BBC London's political editor Tim Donovan asked London Mayor Boris Johnson whether he had failed on his 2008 mayoral election pledge to bring down knife crime.
Mr Johnson said: "Overall, the volume of knife crime is well down but that is no consolation to the families of victims.
"What we're doing is to intensify sensitive stop and search and get the message across that carrying a knife does carry a custodial sentence."
