A post-mortem examination will be scheduled in the coming days, and his next of kin will be notified. 

Neighbours told the Evening Standard that it’s a house that has attracted problems before. They said: “Police are always there. I heard shouting around the time the man was stabbed but it’s normal coming from that property.”

West Area BCU Detective Superintendent Figo Forouzan called the incident “truly shocking” that will cause the community concerns.

He said in a press release: “I want to reassure the Hounslow residents that we have commenced a thorough investigation with the support of our homicide investigation team to ensure those responsible are brought to justice”.

He urged anyone with information to call the police on 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting 873/26APR. Anonymous calls can be made to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
