Daniel Matos, 21, of Craston Close, Hounslow, Keith Preddie, 32, of Shore Close, Feltham, and Joshua Cowley, 27, of Avonwick Road, Hounslow, were charged with murder on Tuesday.

They are due to appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Tyler's family have been informed of this development and continue to be supported by family liaison officers.

A post-mortem examination carried out on Saturday confirmed he died as a result of a stab wound to the neck, the Met said in an update.

A spokesman said: "The investigation continues and detectives would like to hear from anyone with information who has not yet come forward."

Tottenham Hotspur fan Tyler had left his home in Feltham at around 9.10pm on Wednesday January 24 and rode his bike along Elmwood Avenue.

At some stage he entered the park, but never returned to his family. He was the first teenager to be violently killed in London this year.
