Detective Inspector Nick Barnes, from the force’s homicide team, said: “We are working round the clock to find whoever was responsible for Mr Hussain’s death and are following a number of active lines of inquiry.

“However, I am particularly keen to recover any dash-cam footage which could be crucial in identifying a car which fled Baker Street soon after the stabbing.

“We believe this could be key in helping us to catch the killer and would ask anyone who can help to come forward as soon as possible.”
