A man has died and two others were injured after reports of multiple stabbings in Croydon on Halloween night.

The men, who police believe are in their 20s, were found in Gloucester Road shortly after 8pm.

Two were transferred to hospital in a serious condition while another died at the scene.

Police said a fourth man presented himself to a south London hospital with stab injuries.

The dead man has not been formally identified and next of kin were being informed, the Met said.

Officers in Croydon tweeted earlier on Monday evening: “Units responding to reports of multiple stabbings on Gloucester Road. Expect road closures and delays in the area.”
