The Metropolitan Police have released two images of people they urgently need to speak to in connection with a murder that took place at Notting Hill Carnival.
Takayo Nembhard, 21, was stabbed during the carnival and died in hospital. He was attacked at 8:00 pm on Monday, August 29 in Ladbroke Grove under the Westway Viaduct.
Takayo was a rapper who lived in Bristol and attended the Carnival with his sister and friends. An autopsy showed he died of a stab wound to the right femoral artery.
The first photo is of a man wearing a blue t-shirt and a dark blue cap with “Yankees” printed on the back. This man wears his cap sideways.
The man might have a small amount of facial hair, mainly in the beard area.
The second photo shows a man wearing a black shirt and his hair styled neatly back. He also appears to have a small amount of facial hair, in the shape of a goatee.

Takayo’s family said, “Takayo’s death has left an agonizing pain for all who loved and still love him.
“He was so looking forward to becoming a father and would have been a great father as he came from a strong family. His son was born on November 9 and while this should have been a happy event, it was bittersweet.
“Our family, including his girlfriend, continues to struggle daily with life without him.
“Our family is begging the public for any information they have, whether it be videos or photos taken Aug. 29 in the Ladbroke Grove area.
“Please help us bring Takayo’s murderers to justice and therefore give us some comfort in knowing that he did not die in vain.”
