Two men have been stabbed to death within hours of each other in separate daylight attacks in south and north west London on Monday.

A man aged in his 20s was killed in broad daylight in Brixton just after midday before another man was found fatally stabbed in Stanmore shortly before 5pm.

Police were called to Morrison Road, near Angell Town Park, on the Angell Town Estate in Brixton, Metropolitan Police said.

The victim was found with serious stab wounds but despite best efforts from officers and paramedics, died at the scene. No arrests have been made.

Police cordons remain in place at the scene while an investigation continues, the Met said.

A Section 60 authorisation has been declared across the borough of Lambeth between 1pm on Monday until 4am on Tuesday. This authorises officers to search anyone in the area during that time.

Anti-knife crime campaigner Lorraine Jones Burrell said in a video posted to social media site X: “The worst has happened. Another son lost, another son killed in broad daylight.”

Just before 5pm a man died after he was stabbed in the chest in Stanmore.

Officers were called to Masefield Avenue at 4.50pm where the man was found injured.

Despite the efforts of officers and paramedics the man was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. A crime scene is in place.

There have been no arrests and an investigation continues, the Met said.

Any witnesses or anyone with any information on either attack is asked to call police on 101 or contact via Twitter @MetCC.
