A TEENAGER fatally stabbed at the youth offending service in Hillingdon Civic Centre has been named.

Hakim Ishmael Daba Sillah was taken by ambulance to hospital but died within an hour.

He is thought to have been attending a knife awareness course.

A 17-year-old youth has now been charged with murder.

In a short statement, the victim’s family said: "Hakim was a lovely lad who cared about his family and preferred spending time at home with his family.

“He loved looking after his little brother, who had been ill. The parents and family of Hakim would be grateful for any information from members of the public to help this investigation."

Det Ch Insp Noel McHugh, leading the investigation, described the attack as an absolute tragedy and praised a teenager who was wounded trying to stop the fight.
