Detectives investigating the killing of Harry Pitman on New Year's Eve have released images of two people they want to identify.

On the evening of December 31, Harry was with friends near the viewing platform on Primrose Hill, where they had gathered to watch the New Year fireworks.

Shortly before 11.40pm, Harry was involved in a fight with another male that ended with the stab wound that took his life, say police.

A 15-year-old and a 16-year-old arrested on suspicion of murder have both been released on bail, as has an 18-year-old who was arrested on suspicion of affray.

Met Police detectives have released images of two people they want to speak with.

Det Ch Insp Geoff Grogan, who is leading the investigation, said: “We are working at pace to identify and speak to everyone in the immediate vicinity of the murder, and to that end, I have issued two images and am asking anyone who can name the people pictured to get in touch. Similarly, if you see yourself pictured, please contact us without delay. It may be that you have information that could help us, or that we can eliminate you from our enquiries.

“Harry’s family is devastated. He was a vibrant young man who should have had his life ahead of him. We continue to support them as they struggle to come to terms with their loss.”
