Kieran Brown, 26, is accused of murder and possession of a pointed or bladed article following the fatal stabbing of the 22-year-old in Clarence Mews near the Pembury Estate.

He has been remanded in custody and will appear at Thames Magistrates' Court.

Police were called to the scene just after 2pm on Thursday after reports of a fight. Medics fought to save Exauce's life but he died half-an-hour later.

Three other people who were arrested over the stabbing have been bailed pending further enquiries.

Exauce is the fifth person to be killed in Hackney this year.
