Detectives investigating the murder of a single father outside a London pub have made a second arrest.

Christopher Foster was stabbed outside St Christopher's Inn on Borough High Street last Friday. Witnesses say he was attacked by a gang who were brandishing baseball bats and at least one knife.

Officers believe the offenders targeted the wrong man.

A 30-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and has been taken into custody at a south London police station. It comes after a woman was arrested and bailed on Sunday on suspicion of assisting an offender.
