A murder probe has been launched after a teenager was stabbed to death in south London.

Police were called to Seeley Drive in Dulwich at around 6.30pm and found an 18-year-old man suffering from stab wounds.

Medics battled to save the teenager following the broad daylight stabbing, but sadly he died at the scene.

No arrests have been made, and detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

In a statement the Met said: “Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found a man, believed aged 18, suffering stab injuries.

“Despite the efforts of the emergency services, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Work is underway to locate and inform next of kin.

“A crime scene remains in place.”

A neighbour told the Evening Standard: “There was a lot of young men running around the area at the time.

“I’ve heard the man that died, was a only child who used to live on the estate and was visiting friends.”
