Man in 60s stabbed to death in broad daylight outside west London pub

A man in his 30s was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder. 

He was in hospital under police guard last night being treated for minor injuries.

The incident took place within yards of The Plough Inn, a Fuller's pub dating back to the 17th Century, and near  a primary school and a parish church. 

It came a week after Boris Johnson said he was determined to tackle knife crime amid a growing "culture of insolence" among "thugs" who believe they canact with impunity.

Mr Johnson pledged to extended police stop and search powers and also said the government would be investing £2.5 billion in creating 10,000 new prison places.

There have been 88 fatal stabbings reported in the capital this year. 

A man in his 60s was stabbed to death in broad daylight near a historic pub in west London on Saturday.

He was pronounced dead after police were called to St Mary's Avenue in Southall at 6.41pm.

The victim begged to see his wife after he was stabbed when leaving the pub, according to a witness who gave him first aid.

Raj Grover, who lives nearby, said he used a towel to stem the flow of blood from the man's wounds after he knocked at his door.

Mr Grover said the victim told him "just call my wife" before he died from his injuries.

"He was just saying, 'I'm losing it', I said, 'don't worry, stay with us'," he added.
