A 26-year-old man who died following a double stabbing in East London during the early hours of Saturday morning (February 11) has been named by police as Trei Daley and pictured for the first time.
Mr Daley, of Bromley, South London, was fatally knifed close to the Colour Factory nightclub in Queen’s Yard, just off White Post Lane in Hackney Wick, and the Metropolitan Police have launched an investigation to find the killer.
Police were called around 4:30am this morning (Saturday, February 11) after two people walked into a nearby hospital with stab wounds. Officers established the pair had been knifed. A crime scene is now in place with forensics combing the area for clues.

Doctors did their best to save Trei Daley, aged 26, but sadly he died of his injuries in hospital. A second man, 24, remains in hospital, but police are yet to receive an update on his condition. A post-mortem examination and formal identification of the dead man is yet to take place.
A murder probe led by detectives from Specialist Crime and supported by colleagues from the Met’s Central East BCU has been launched while the knifeman remains at large. A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “There has been no arrest at this early stage.”
Detective Chief Inspector Jim Eastwood made an appeal for witnesses. He said: “Firstly, I want to express my most sincere sympathies to Trei’s family. They are being supported by specialist officers, and a dedicated team of detectives will be doing everything possible to bring to justice whoever was responsible for this tragic killing.
“Our inquiries have established that Trei was stabbed near to the Colour Factory nightclub in Queen’s Yard, which is just off White Post Lane in Hackney Wick. This area was still busy at around 4am to 4.30am on Saturday morning. Were you there? Did you witness some sort of fight or confrontation? Did you see or hear anything suspicious?”
He said officers have already spoken to several people who were in the area, but need more to come forward.
Part of White Post Lane has been cordoned off by officers, and what appeared to be blood stains could be seen from outside the police tape, along with evidence markers. Just before noon, police extended the taped area to Cadogan Close near Victoria Park, including a footbridge over the river.
