The death of a 15-year-old in Kingston is still unexplained following a post-mortem.

Alfie Lawton was found dead at Green Lane Recreation Ground, near Berrylands Station, on Monday February 8th.

His death was treated as unexplained, but not suspicious.

Earlier this week police announced that a post mortem had also failed to explain the cause of his death.

A spokesperson for the Met Police said:

"On Monday, 15 February a post-mortem examination was carried out but did not establish a cause of death. Further tests will now take place.

"The Met's South West Local Investigations team are leading the investigation into the circumstances of the incident.

"All efforts are being made to trace witnesses who may have further information and officers are urging anyone who was in or around Green Lane Recreation Ground on the evening of Monday, 8 February, or who may spoke with Alfie in the days before his death, to get in touch."

Anyone who can help with this police enquiry should call 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting ref CAD5562/08FEB21.
