Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley, Specialist Crime, said: “Today marks a month since Alexander was tragically shot, in what we now believe to be a case of mistaken identity.

“The month has seen officers working round the clock to locate those who have committed this horrendous crime.

“Officers have been analysing hours of CCTV from across London, and we hope these clips will help those who may have been in the area or seen this vehicle before to come forward with what they know.

“Alexander’s family continue to be in our thoughts and we are determined to help them get justice.”
