The Metropolitan police said officers were called to reports of a stabbing in Lilestone Street, Westminster at 3.23pm on Monday, where they found two injured men.

One man, in his 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene while the other was taken to hospital with a stab wound. His condition is currently unknown.

The force is treating the incident as murder and inquiries are under way to identify the dead man.

No arrests have been made.

DCS Owain Richards, local policing commander for Westminster, said: “This is a tragic incident and I am deeply saddened that another young life has been lost to knife crime on the streets of London.

“I know the community will join me in sending our thoughts to the victim’s family at this awful time.

“I appreciate people will want answers about what happened, but I would like to ask that our dedicated team of detectives are given the time and space they need to conduct their inquiries.

“A large number of officers will remain in the area and I’d encourage anyone with immediate concerns to speak to them.”
