A man was found at the scene with stab wounds, with members of the public and paramedics spending 29 minutes desperately trying to save his life.

Tragically the man, believed to be 29, died at the scene at the Gowan Avenue junction with Munster Road.

It comes 20 years on from when BBC presenter Jill Dando was shot dead on the doorstep of her home.

Jill, from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, was an English journalist, television presenter and newsreader and one of the best-known faces on British television.

From 1995 until she died she was the presenter of BBC’s Crimewatch and in 1997 she was awarded the BBC Personality of the Year.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “A crime scene is in place and officers are working to establish the full circumstances of what happened.”

The man’s next of kin have been informed.

No arrests have been made.

The stabbing comes as London has been gripped by knife crime across the capital.

Figures from London’s Metropolitan police showed that knife crime surged by 16 per cent in the capital year-on-year in 2018, as Britain’s crime epidemic continues.

Those with information that can assist police should call 101 ref 179/16 March.
