A man has been murdered in north London after having all the tyres on his car slashed.

The Met were called at 23:10 BST on Saturday to reports of an assault in Montagu Road, Lower Edmonton.

A man, who police believe to be 28-year-old Teon Palmer, had been stabbed and was pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives said they thought those who vandalised the car knew it was his.

Up to seven black men were seen leaving the scene after the attack.

Acting Det Ch Insp Andy Yeats, of the Met's Homicide and Serious Crime Command, said: "A blue Vauxhall Astra car belonging to Teon Palmer was vandalised prior to the assault on him.

"I believe those who damaged the car knew it belonged to Teon."
