London SE1 website team

Police have launched a murder investigation after a man was found with stab wounds at the Tabard Centre in Prioress Street, near the Bricklayers Arms.

Police were called at approximately 9pm on Sunday evening to the Tabard Centre in Prioress Street to reports of a man suffering from stab wounds.

The London Ambulance Service attended but the man (in his 50s) was pronounced dead at the scene.

A posting by a local resident on the London SE1 forum reports at least five police cars and three ambulances. The ambulances left empty after an hour or so to be replaced by seven or so detectives clutching red folders who remained at the scene overnight.

Police are in the process of informing next of kin. The man has yet to be formally identified and a Post Mortem will be held in due course.

Police are keeping an open mind as to the motive and no arrests have been made. A murder investigation has been launched.
