A 23-year-old man has been named as the victim of a fatal stabbing.

Reece Tshoma, from Barking, was stabbed in the neck on Thursday (March 29) before being driven to a hospital by a friend.

Police believe Reece was attacked near Nathan Way, which runs from near Plumstead station to Thamesmead.

He died later the same day in hospital.

A post-mortem examination concluded the stab wound caused an internal haemorrhage.

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Leonard, of the Met's homicide and major crime command, said: "This investigation is ongoing and we are still piecing together exactly where and how the victim was attacked.

"Were you in the Plumstead area on the evening of 29 March? Did you witness a commotion or altercation, or see anything that seemed unusual, like a person or group of people running in the area? Any piece of information is useful to our investigation and I would urge you to call police immediately."
