A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 21-year-old chef was found stabbed to death in south-west London.
Met Police officers, carrying out a welfare check at an address in Lavender Sweep, Battersea, discovered the man's body just before 21:00 BST on Thursday.
The dead man has been identified as Henry Stangroom.
Police said a 30-year-old man, also found at the address and suffering from neck injuries, had been arrested.
A post-mortem examination showed Mr Stangroom died from stab wounds to his heart and lung.
The injured suspect was taken to a hospital in south London where he remains in a stable condition.
A Met Police spokesman said officers were not looking for anyone else in connection with the investigation.
