Police have arrested a 38 year-old man in connection with the murder of Anthony Charlery in Notting Hill on Friday. The grandfather was stabbed just before midnight as he left the Mau Mau bar in Portobello Road.

A 21 year-old man was also arrested yesterday. But police are still looking for witnesses:

I appeal to anyone who knows the identity of the persons involved to call detectives. Tony was a local man and a much loved grandfather. His family are devastated by his death in such a brutal way. As I believe the two suspects to be local men, I especially appeal to the Notting Hill community for help.
