A teenager stabbed to death on a sports field in south west London has been named locally as Afghan refugee Hazrat Wali.

Relatives said Mr Wali, 18, a student at Richmond Upon Thames College, who was attacked during a fight in Craneford Way, Twickenham, had come to the UK two years ago for a better life.

A relative living in Stanmore told the Standard: “Hazrat was a very good boy. He came here to study, he was living all on his own in London. His immediate family are all back in Afghanistan.

“I saw him in hospital. He had a fight is all that I’ve heard.”

His close friend Sahil Kochay said: “He was a very good person. Very caring and loved everyone.

“He didn’t hold any hate towards anybody. He used to stand up for everyone. I wish I knew why someone would hurt him. He wasn’t the kind of guy to fight.”

He was stabbed to death on a sports field in front of schoolchildren whose teacher ran over to give CPR in a desperate attempt to try to save his life.
