The victim is in a critical condition after being assaulted in Blackheath, south east London in the early hours of August 28.

A cordon is likely to remain in place for the rest of the day while police officers investigate the attack, which happened at about 12.45am.

Part of the village has been closed to traffic and pedestrians and bus routes have been diverted.

Worshippers at a nearby church prayed for the victim and his family and friends during mass.

Officers from Greenwich CID continue to investigate.
