Birds Of A Feather star says her son Louis tried to help him
Ben Kinsella, 16, was stabbed after a row broke out at the Shillibeers pub in Islington, north London.
The Birds Of A Feather star’s son Louis cradled him in his arms at the scene.
He tried to keep him alive by talking to him and staunching the flow of blood from his wound but he later died in hospital.
‘Just as my husband was arriving to pick my son up, Louis rang – he was in a terrible state – to say that Ben had been stabbed,’ she tells ITV’s London Tonight.
‘Something had happened outside the club. They all ran out and some boys chased them, they got separated, someone told Louis that Ben had been stabbed.
‘Louis then went back to Ben and cradled him as he was dying.’
On Sunday, ex-EastEnders star Brooke, 24, who played Kelly Taylor in the soap until 2004, joined mourners at the scene.
She was joined by her boyfriend Ray Panthaki, 29, who played Ronny Ferreira in the show.
Two youths have been arrested and released on bail.
