The metropolitan police have opened their third murder probe in just 24 hours after a man in his 30s was stabbed to death in east London.
Police were called to the scene on Alton Street, Tower Hamlets, just before 2pm on Saturday.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene, near Langdon Park DLR station in Poplar.
Enquiries are underway to notify next of kin and post mortem will be scheduled in due course.
Police said there have been no arrests and officers retain an open mind as to motive.
In a statement, they said: “Bearing down on violent crime on the streets of London continues to be a top priority for the Met.
“Teams across the city are working tirelessly – day and night – to identify and pursue offenders, help bring perpetrators to justice, take weapons off the street, support victims, engage and reassure the public, and keep our communities safe.
“Communities have a vital role to play in tackling violent crime. We want to hear from anyone who may have information about people who may carry knives or firearms, or who are involved in organised drug crime and violence.
“This information could save lives in the future. If you aren’t comfortable speaking directly to the police, please contact the independent charity Crimestoppers. They do not ask your name or trace your call.”
