Man found stabbed

Detectives investigating a fatal stabbing in Tower Hamlets are appealing for witnesses or anyone with footage to come forward.

Police were called at 8:26pm on Tuesday, 21 September to East Ferry Road, E14 following reports of a group of men fighting.

Officers responded and found a 33-year-old man suffering from stab injuries.

Officers administered CPR prior to the arrival of London Ambulance Service [LAS] paramedics.

Despite their best efforts the man was pronounced dead at the scene at 8:52pm.

A murder investigation has been launched by the Met’s Specialist Crime Command led by Detective Chief Inspector Laurence Smith.

DCI Smith said: “Although we are at the very early stages of this investigation, we are exploring a number of lines of enquiry and believe at this stage that this was an isolated incident, involving parties known to each other.

“My officers remain in the area speaking with people and conducting door to door enquiries.

“If you have information, images or footage relating to any stage of this incident please do feel free to approach them, or, if you prefer, contact us directly or anonymously via Crimestoppers.

“We are aware of footage circulating on social media and I respectfully ask that this footage not be shared further as it not only encourages unhelpful speculation, but could compromise any future legal proceedings.

“No matter how small or insignificant your information seems, it could be a missing piece of the puzzle or may confirm information provided by someone else. If you can help, please do make the call.”

Anyone with information or footage should call the Incident Room on 020 8 345 3895, call 101 or Tweet @MetCC.
