A man who was stabbed multiple times in London managed to walk up to police to report the attack.

Officers were on a routine patrol near King's Cross railway station shortly before 4am when the victim approached.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: "Some of our officers were on patrol in Kings Cross Road when they were approached by a man suffering from stab wounds."

The 22-year-old victim was taken to hospital for treatment and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

A witness wrote on Twitter that blood could be seen on the ground near what looked like chef's knives, the Evening Standard reported.
