Man killed in attack in his home in West Kensington

A man has been killed in an attack in his own home in west London, the Metropolitan Police (Met) has said.

The body of the victim, in his 50s, was found at the property in Dewhurst Road in West Kensington on Friday afternoon.

The dead man, who is yet to be formally identified, died from a head injury, a post-mortem examination has found.

Det Ch Insp Tim Duffield said the victim was attacked between Thursday evening and Friday morning. No arrests have been made as yet.

Mr Duffield said: "It is believed the victim was attacked inside his home between 7.00pm on Thursday, 20 October and some time the following morning.

"I'm eager to speak to anyone who was in or near Dewhurst Road during that period.

"It's quite possible that a person or a vehicle was seen hanging round the area or leaving in a hurry, which at the time may have seemed insignificant."
