Man, 40, stabbed to death after ‘fight on London bus’ as police launch murder probe

A murder probe has been opened after a 40-year-old man was stabbed to death in broad daylight in north London.

The Metropolitan Police are investigating the tragedy, which happened in Willesden, in the north of the capital, at around 5pm.

Willesden High Street was cordoned off as detectives descended on the crime.

It is understood that a fight had broken out on a bus shortly before the attack, but the Met has yet to confirm this.

Several red London buses were trapped within the police cordon.
