A murder investigation has been launched after a man was stabbed to death at a block of flats near to Elephant and Castle roundabout in Southwark, London.

The Metropolitan Police have said the force was called to an address at Bramwell House in Southwark at 11.10am following reports of a stabbing.

Police discovered a man, in his 20s, inside the address suffering from stab wounds, and London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance service were called to the scene.

Despite the efforts of paramedics, the man succumbed to his injuries and was later pronounced dead by emergency services.

The Met have now launched a murder investigation into the death and confirmed in a statement that enquiries into the circumstances of the stabbing are ongoing.

Pictures from the scene show a heavy police presence in the area, both inside the flat the murder is alleged to have occurred and outside the block of flats.

Other images show a police van parked outside the address, alongside an ambulance and another emergency medical vehicle.

Police appear to have cordoned off the entrance to the block of flats, as well as the road leading up to the entryway.
