A woman has died after being stabbed in south London on Monday afternoon.

Police were called to reports of a stabbing on Stockwell Park Walk in Brixton at about 4pm on Monday but the woman, believed to be in her 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The area has also been cordoned off and some roads are currently closed while officers work at the scene.

The family of the woman have been informed and are currently being supported by specialist officers.

Natasha Jordan, who works at Live True London on Brixton Road, said: "There were loads of police cars and ambulances that came.

"Loads of police were walking up and down the road because there’s a police station right near here.

"No one actually came in and said anything though, and I’ve been in here all day."

People are being asked to avoid the area while it remains sealed off.

Florence Eshalomi, the local MP, expressed her condolences on Twitter.

The Labour and Co-op MP for Vauxhall said: "Very sad to hear of a tragic stabbing of a woman near Stockwell Park Walk this afternoon.

"There is a crime scene in place and investigations are at an early stage."
