Danny Drake
Danny Drake stabbed Alim Uddi seven times after a dispute over £90 Met Police

A teenager who viciously stabbed a boy to death in a row over a £90 bike has been named as Danny Drake after a judge sentenced him to life imprisonment.

Drake coaxed teenager Alim Uddin to Tilford House, Holmewood Gardens, in Brixton, south London, after they fell out over the sale of £90 bike that was never delivered to Uddin.

Drake then stabbed him seven times before dumping his blood-stained top and trying to wash his clothes.

Uddin was taken to King's College Hospital with chest, back and shoulder wounds and was later pronounced dead.

Police traced the suspect leaving the scene of the killing using CCTV before he tried to wash his bloodied clothes at a laundrette.

However it was only when the shop was closed that he went to a relative's house in Tooting, south-west London, where he soaked his clothes in a bath upstairs. Forensic tests later confirmed it was Uddin's blood on both the clothes and the bath.

Appearing at the Old Bailey today, Judge Stephen Kramer told Drake he would serve at least 13 years in prison before he would be considered for release.

Kramer also lifted restrictions that protected his identity, adding: "This is a tragedy as you rightly say in your letter. This was a vicious and lethal attack with a significant aggravating feature that you took the knife with you to the scene."
