Officers were called near to the Dene entrance of the park at 9.49pm to reports of a man with a stab injury.

Despite the best efforts of emergency services he died at the scene.

All entrances to the park were closed off as forensics worked at the scene.

A post-mortem examination established cause of death as blood loss following a stab wound to the arm.

Police say they had contact with Milton earlier in the day before his death, the circumstances of which are unclear.

As a major investigation into the murder continues, the Metropolitan Police have confirmed that detectives will be returning to the scene of the crime this evening, one week on from the murder.
