Norman Bertran-Tavarez, 24, died in hospital on Monday morning as a result of his injuries sustained following the attack at Elephant and Castle tube station.

A 25-year-old man remains in hospital in a stable condition.

A murder investigation has been launched after the two men were found with stab wounds in the street close to Elephant and Castle Underground station on Sunday night.

Two 20-year-old men, both from Southwark, who were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder have been released on police bail.

Enquiries are ongoing and detectives continue to appeal for anyone with information or anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward and assist their investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Sam Blackburn said: ‘This was a shocking act of violence and we are working tirelessly to identify and trace those responsible.

‘While the investigation is still at an early stage, at this time we believe there was an altercation between two groups of men inside the Underground station and it is here the victims sustained their injuries before making their way onto the street.
