Mr Evbota, who recently moved to Kent from London, was stabbed on the Brandon Estate in Grimsel Path.

Officers and emergency services were called at 8.20pm but he was pronounced dead at the scene an hour later.

A 14-year-old boy was also arrested but has since been released with no further action.

A GoFundMe page was set up in his memory to cover funeral costs and raised more than double its original target of £1,500.

Dartford MP Gareth Johnson described the circumstances surrounding Clinton's death as "truly appalling".

He said: "The death of this young man from Dartford is yet another tragic loss of life to knife crime. The circumstances surrounding his death are truly appalling.

"I have spoken in depth with the Met Police about their investigation and as you might expect, they are dealing with this in a very professional and determined way.
