Police appeal for Oxford Street stabbing witnesses

An 18-year-old man has been stabbed to death in London, on one of the UK's busiest shopping streets.

The victim died outside the Foot Locker sports shop on Oxford Street, near the junction with Stratford Place.

Det Ch Insp Mark Dunne said there appeared to have been two groups of young people "opposing each other".

He appealed for witnesses who saw the stabbing on the crowded West End street to contact police.
