Police have launched a murder investigation following the death of a man a week after he was stabbed.

The 23-year-old had been brought to a south London hospital in a critical condition on June 11.

Police were called to Lucey Way in Bermondsey that evening and found the man suffering stab injuries.

He was pronounced dead on Monday morning.

The man's next of kin have been told and a post-mortem examination will take place in due course, the Metropolitan Police said.

The force said the man may have been fatally injured after a fight and have appealed for information.

Detective Inspector Ian Titterrell said:

"At this early stage, we believe an altercation involving a group of males began outside Helen Taylor House in Linsey Street.

"The victim then took shelter at an address on Lucey Way after being attacked.

"We know there were a large number of people in the vicinity at the time of the attack and I am appealing for anyone with information to get in touch. "Any information will be treated with the strictest of confidence."
