The three women were critically injured in the crush were all in the foyer of the building of the Brixton O2 Academy.

Metropolitan Police has since launched an ‘urgent investigation’ after reports that a large number of ticketless fans attempted to force entry into the music venue for Afrobeats singer Asake’s sold-out concert.

A member of security staff at the event said: “One of my younger colleagues tried to save a girl, gave her CPR”

Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove, policing commander for Lambeth and Southwark, said: “It is devastating news that a second person has lost their life following the events on Thursday.

‘I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to Gabrielle’s family at this unimaginably difficult time.’

Detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command are investigating the incident, and are continuing to appeal for witnesses to contact them.

The police force said they had referred themselves to the Independent Office for Police Conduct, adding it is a ‘standard national practice following all incidents where police have been in attendance and members of the public have died or been seriously injured’.
