Murder probe after party stabbing

A murder investigation has been launched after the death of a man who was stabbed at a party.

The 26-year-old man was taken to an east London hospital in a critical condition in the early hours but later died, Scotland Yard said.

He was one of three men who were stabbed when a large fight broke out at a party at Lyndeans Industrial Estate, off Felixstowe Road, in Abbey Wood, south east London.

Police were called at around 5.09am.

A 24-year-old man, who was taken to an east London hospital and a 26-year-old who was sent to a south London hospital, have now been discharged.

No arrests have been made.

Inspector Sean Carre-Brown, of Greenwich CID, said: "This had been an organised event with no issues, however at the close of the party a number of persons became involved in a brawl. This would have been witnessed by a large number of people leaving the party."

He urged any witnesses to contact Greenwich CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
