Police investigating the fatal stabbing of a 25 year old man in Camden Town last week have appealed for taxi and black cab drivers to send in dashcam footage to help the inquiry.

The victim was pronounced dead after being attacked in Camden High Street, near to the Camden Town tube station.

He has not been named yet, though his next of kin have been informed.

Police had been called at 11.10pm to reports of an assault.

Another man, also in his twenties, was also found with a stab injury - he is now in a stable condition in hospital.

Det Ch Insp John Hughes from Scotland Yard's Specialist Crime squad is leading the investigation. He said: "We now understand that this attack took place next to the Camden Town tube station. This is one of the busiest and most popular parts of London. Lots of people were coming in and out of the station and many taxi and black cabs were passing through the area at the time. I would like to make a direct appeal to them to send in dash cam footage to our investigators. It could prove vital to apprehending those involved.

"Equally if you were there on Thursday night, we need to hear from you."
