Ex-Walford star's brother stabbed to death

The younger brother of former EastEnders actress Brooke Kinsella has been stabbed to death in north London.

Reports suggest that 16-year-old Ben Kinsella was involved in an altercation with a group of black youths before he lost his life in the incident, which took place at 2am on Sunday in Islington.

Brooke, who played Kelly Taylor in the BBC One soap, attended the scene of the stabbing yesterday with friends and family who wished to pay their respects to the teen.

Mr Kinsella had attended a birthday party at a nearby pub on the night of his death. Before the stabbing occurred, he used his mobile phone to make a call for help to one of his friends.

17-year-old David Dugdale said: "He called me on the phone and just said 'help'. He sounded really scared and then it just clicked off."

Another friend added: "He wouldn't hurt you, he wouldn't even shout at anybody. He was the sort of boy that was a role model for everyone else. He was a good boy."

The teenager had been taken to the Whittington hospital, where he lost his life. In a short statement released through her publicist, Brooke has said that she is "devastated".

Two 16-year-olds have been arrested in connection with the incident.
