A murder investigation has been launched by the Met after a young man was knifed to death in Kingswood Estate.

 Police were called to Seeley Drive at 6.30pm yesterday (Wednesday, July 8) to reports of a stabbing.

The victim, who is believed to be eighteen-years-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

He has not yet been named by police, with officers saying work is underway to locate and inform his next of kin.

No arrests have been made and a crime scene remains in place.

Southwark Council’s public health and safety cabinet member, Evelyn Akoto, said: “Saddened to hear of the fatal stabbing of a young man on Kingswood Estate – my heart goes out to the family who will be dealing with this tragic news.” 

Local MP Helen Hayes was at the scene yesterday meeting with distraught residents who are shocked such an attack could happen in their close community.

Both Hayes and Akoto have urged anyone with information to come forward.

Anyone with information should call 101 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
