A 17-year-old boy has died after being stabbed outside Clapham South tube station, Metropolitan Police have said.

Authorities were called to the station, in south west London, at approximately 4.35PM on Friday.

Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended the scene and the teenager was taken to a south London hospital, before being pronounced dead at 5:23PM.

“His next of kin have not been informed,” the statement reads. “Formal identification has not yet taken place and a post-mortem examination will be held in due course.

“Police remain on scene. No arrests. Enquiries ongoing.

“Road closures are in place and Clapham South Station has been closed.”

This death comes one day after a 15-year-old, named locally as Jai Sewell, was stabbed to death in Bellingham, south east London.

The killing marks the 115th homicide in the capital so far this year.
