A teenager was stabbed to death on bank holiday Monday in a London park in broad daylight.

The 18-year-old man was found with a stab injury following reports of a group of males fighting in north London.

He was treated by London’s Air Ambulance and London Ambulance Service at the scene in Montrose Park, Colindale, but was later pronounced dead.

Seven males have been arrested on suspicion of offences including affray and attempted murder and are in police custody.
