Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Truss, who’s leading the investigation, said: Our investigation is progressing well and we are building a picture of the circumstances which led up to the boys’ death.
“We have seized more than 200 hours of CCTV footage and are now methodically going through it.
“We believe this was an isolated incident and there isn’t a risk to the wider public. Brentwood is a safe place and incidents like this are rare.
“My team is working round the clock and you’re likely to see a police presence in the area while we continue our enquiries.
“Officers from the Brentwood Community Policing Team will continue to carry out additional patrols in the area.
“They’re there to provide reassurance so please do speak to them if you have any concerns.
“We still need anyone who has any information about what happened, who we’ve not spoken to, to come forward.”
Detective Chief Inspector Andy Clarkson, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, has led the investigation through the night: He said: This incident has required an immediate and a large-scale response and officers and investigators have worked through the night to piece together what happened in the lead up to this tragic incident.
“Our investigations will continue throughout today.
“We understand there will naturally be shock and concern within the community after such a tragic loss of life. But, at this stage, we do not believe there is any wider threat to the public.
“We know there were a number of witnesses to this incident and I would urge anyone who saw anything in Regency Court and the roads around it in central Brentwood between 1am and 2am to come forward and speak to us if you have not already done so.”
Chief Inspector Mark Barber added: There will continue to be a highly visible police presence in Brentwood this morning and indeed throughout the day: I am acutely aware that this incident will shock many without the community. My officers will be there throughout the day – they will be there to reassure you and keep you safe. If you have any concerns or information on the incident then, please, do not hesitate to come forward and speak to them.”
