Murder probe after stabbing death

Police have launched a murder investigation after a man was stabbed to death outside a multi-purpose hall.

Officers were called at 5.35am to reports that someone had been stabbed outside the Beaver Centre on Selinas Road in Dagenham, east London.

The victim, who is believed to have been 24, was taken to an east London hospital and pronounced dead at around 7.15am. Next of kin have been informed.

A 38-year-old man was later arrested in connection with the investigation at a property in Goodmayes and is in custody at an east London police station.

An incident room was opened at Barking under Detective Chief Inspector Neale Baldock from the Homicide and Major Crime Command.

The Beaver Centre is used for training, conferences, banqueting, weddings, exhibitions and social events and can accommodate up to 700 guests.

Detectives are very keen to hear from anyone who was there last night.

Any witnesses or anyone with any information are asked to call the incident room on 020 8345 1570 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
