South London stabbing death brings capital's tally to 31 this year

So far in 2018, 46 people in London have been fatally stabbed, shot or injured compared to 50 in the United States city.

The shocking spate of killings this year has seen London overtake NY for the number of murders for the first time in modern history.

No arrests have been made over the shooting, which comes amid concerns over rising violent crime in the capital.

According to the Sunday Times, 15 people were murdered in London in February, while 14 were killed in NY.

Six people were attacked by a 19 year old man with a knife at 10.30pm in Russell Square, London last night.
