He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Metropolitan Police have launched a murder investigation – the 74th begun by the force since the start of 2018.

Officers believe they know the identity of the man, and formal identification and a post-mortem examination will take place.

Nearby roads – and Ducketts Common, where police believe the victim may have been stabbed – have been cordoned off while investigations are carried out.

On Sunday afternoon a white tent could be seen over the spot where the victim fell, while the junction linking Green Lanes to Turnpike Lane remained cordoned off.

A team in blue forensics suits were combing through the bushes behind the bus stop with sticks and searching Ducketts Common.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
