The victim was found Spikes Bridge Road in Southall at about 23:15 BST on Saturday, before being declared dead in hospital at 06:30 BST.

A 24-year-old man is currently in custody for questioning by detectives.

The Met Police want to trace a car, containing three or four men, that was seen in the area before the attack.
