Detectives investigating the East Croydon sorting office rave where a 15-year-old boy died have released images of seven people they want to speak to as part of their enquiry.
Rio Andrew was taken to hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning after falling ill at the event in the disused Royal Mail building in Cherry Orchard Road, Croydon.
He had gone with a group of his friends when he collapsed and became ill at the rave.
The teenager, from west London, died in hospital on Monday.
