A teenager has been killed and a 32-year-old man has been seriously injured in a shooting in east London.

The pair were shot in Hindrey Road, Clapton, at 20:20 GMT on Saturday, the Metropolitan Police said.

They were taken to hospital where the younger victim, aged 19, died at about 23:10 GMT. The other man is understood to be in a stable condition.

Police have made no arrests and have yet to establish a motive for the attack.

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
