A 20-year-old man has been stabbed to death in north-west London.

Police were called at about 23:45 BST on Thursday to Boundary Road, South Hampstead, north-west London, where they found two men with stab wounds.

Both were taken to hospital, where the younger man was pronounced dead. The 22-year-old is in a stable condition.

Two men, aged 20 and 23, have been arrested on suspicion of murder, following an armed-stop of car in West Kilburn in the early hours of Friday.

The dead man's next of kin have been informed and a post-mortem examination is due to be held later.

Detectives said the death was being linked with another incident in nearby Lancefield Street where a 20-year-old man was stabbed in the leg.

His condition is not life-threatening, police said.
