LONDON BLOODBATH: Teen stabbed to death in Clapham in SECOND fatal attack in just 24 hours

A TEENAGER has been stabbed to death at a busy tube station in south-west London - the second fatal attack in the capital in less than 24 hours.

Police were scrambled to the scene at Clapham South Tube Station at 4.35pm where the 17-year-old victim was found with a stab wound.

The boy was rushed to hospital but died less than an hour later, the Metropolitan Police said.

The killing marks the 115th homicide in London so far this year and the third in the capital so far this week.

Clapham South Tube Station has been closed while forensics officers process the scene for evidence.

Today’s attack comes less than 24 hours after a 15-year-old boy was killed in Bellingham, south-east London.

Emergency services descended on the scene in Randlesdown Road shortly after 5.20pm yesterday.

The teenage victim was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead at 8.15pm.

Dionne Wright, 36, said she used to see the victim on the bus every day, describing him as a "sweet little boy".
