Second victim of Asake’s concert dies

A female security guard, Gabriella Hutchinson, has died after sustaining injuries in a crush at the music concert hosted by singer Asake at the O2 Brixton Academy on Thursday night.

The Metropolitan Police disclosed that a third woman, 21, who was still receiving treatment, was in critical condition.

“I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to Gabrielle’s family at this unimaginably difficult time.”

The police cordons outside the venue have been removed, but cordons remain in place inside the building while officers continue to examine the scene.

The force said they had referred themselves to the Independent Office for Police Conduct, adding it is a ‘standard national practice following all incidents where police have been in attendance and members of the public have died or been seriously injured’.
