Murder probe launched after man stabbed to death in north London


A murder investigation has been launched after a man was stabbed to death in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police were called to Camden High Street close to Greenland Road, in north London, at around 3.45am to reports of a man suffering a stab wound.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, was taken to a central London hospital where he later died.

He has not yet been formally identified, and a post-mortem examination will take place in due course.

Metropolitan Police Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh said: "I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Camden Town Underground Station or the high street at the time of the stabbing to contact police.

"It is possible that you may have information that will help us establish what led to the murder.

"The area has a busy nightlife and I am certain that there are people who are yet to speak with officers and I would urge them to come forward. 

"I would also like to hear from any bus drivers or taxi drivers who may have witnessed the stabbing or the minutes leading up to it."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 020 8785 8099, 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
