“He was taken to a south London hospital where his died at 05:28 hours.

The spokesman said: “The Homicide and Major Crime Command have been informed.

“No arrests at this stage. Enquiries are ongoing.”

The tragedy is the latest in a series of fatal stabbings which has claimed the lives of at least 51 people since the start of the year.

Shaun Bailey, a member of the London Assembly and deputy leader of the Conservative Greater London Authority Group, told Express.co.uk earlier today fear was growing across London ā€“ and pointed the finger at London Mayor Sadiq Khan for not tking “swift action”.

Mr Bailey said: ā€œIā€™m devastated to hear of the quadruple stabbing overnight.
