A man has died after being found with fatal stab wounds on a street in south-east London.

The victim, believed to be 22, was found in Samos Road, Anerley, Bromley, at 12:30 GMT and pronounced dead at the scene at 13:00, police said.

No arrests have been made and the Metropolitan Police has launched a murder investigation.

The man's next of kin have yet to be informed, the force said, and the area remained cordoned off.

Labour MP for Lewisham West and Penge Ellie Reeves posted on social media she was "devastated" to hear of another murder in her constituency.

"Devastated to hear about the murder on Samos Road today. The second murder in my constituency in 72 hours," she tweeted.

"I am waiting for further details, but my thoughts are with the victim and their family. This has to stop."

The latest killing comes after two teenage boys were both fatally stabbed in separate incidents in south London.

Jay Hughes, 15, died on Thursday night after being stabbed in a chicken shop in Randlesdown Road, Bellingham, Lewisham.

The following day Malcolm Mide-Madariola, 17, from Peckham, was attacked in Balham Hill outside Clapham South Tube station and later died in hospital.

No arrests have been made in either murder investigation.
