UPDATE: Police seek witnesses after Woolwich murder

UPDATE: Met Police have revealed that a man succumbed to his injuries at 20:55 tonight after being stabbed this afternoon.

ORIGINAL: Police have launched an appeal for help after a man in his 20s was stabbed multiple times on Tellson Avenue this afternoon.

The victim was rushed to a south London hospital.

The incident is on the very edges of Woolwich on a road running parallel to Shooters Hill near a co-op and close to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich.

According to police “His next of kin are aware. We await formal identification. A post-mortem will be scheduled in due course.”

Greenwich Council leader has tweeted:

No arrests have yet been made and if you saw anything around 2:40pm contact  the police on 101 quoting 4835/10JUL, tweet them at @MetCC or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    Very sad. Bad time across London right now (and the country).

    Well done for getting the location right too. I notice all other media have called it Greenwich. Yes its in the borough but when looking for witnesses you REALLY should put the right place. It just shows most very little idea about this area.

      Well said, it also irritates me when the media say South London, it’s South East London!

    Thank you Murky and well done for getting the area right.I agree with Joe and Jodi really important when looking for witnesses. . Neighbours have complained for a long time now that this area suffers from anti social behaviour along with the nearby Hornfair park which also includes youths on mopeds etc.
