A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman in her 20s was found stabbed to death at a London home.

A murder probe was launched by the Met Police after the female victim was found suffering from knife wounds at a house in Stockwell, south London, on Sunday night.

Although emergency services tried to save the woman, she was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Police were called to a ‘disturbance’ just after 9pm and, along with paramedics, discovered the injured woman when they arrived at the property.
