Murder inquiry over Hackney pub stabbing

A man has died after being discovered stabbed outside a pub in east London.

Officers on patrol found the victim near the Glyn Arms, in Mandeville Street, Hackney, on Thursday night.

The 26-year-old was taken to hospital but died from his injuries soon after. Three people, aged 24, 26 and 27, have been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Police said they were investigating an "incident" involving the victim inside the pub, which happened shortly before he was found injured.

They refused to release any more details about this but appealed for witnesses to come forward.
