A murder investigation has been launched after a young man was stabbed to death.

Police are probing a second murder in West Green Road, Tottenham, in just over a month after being called to the street at around 4pm on Monday (February 22).

The Met says it was called to reports of a man, believed to be aged in his 20s, stabbed.

Officers and the London Ambulance Service were unable to save the man's life and he died at the scene.

The man's next of kin have been informed but at this stage no arrests have been made.

The stabbing took place in the western end of West Green Road near the junction of Green Lanes and Alfoxton Avenue, close to Turnpike Lane station.

A video showed an area of parkland taped off and multiple police vehicles at the scene.

West Green Lane remains cordoned off this morning near Green Lanes with the Met saying residents will see an increased number of officers conducting reassurance patrols in the area.

It is the second murder in West Green Road this year, following the death of Anas Mezenner.

Anas, 17, died in hospital after being found stabbed shortly after 9pm on Wednesday January 20, in almost exactly the same location as last night's stabbing.

Anas was found injured at the junction with Willow Walk and he died from his injuries in the early hours of January 21.

Five teenagers have since been charged with Anas' murder.

A second 17-year-old was also found with stab injuries in West Green Road on January 20 but police say his injuries were not life threatening.

Detectives investigating last night's fatal stabbing are appealing for witnesses and information.

There is no suggestion at this stage from police that yesterday's stabbing is linked to the stabbings in January.

Anyone with information about last night's incident that could assist police is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD4438/22Feb or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
