A murder investigation has been launched after a man was stabbed outside his home in Hemel Hempstead.

Adam Watt, 38, died in hospital on Sunday after being found injured at Evans Wharf, Apsley Lock, just after 1.10am that morning.

Officers think his murderers were known to him and have launched a manhunt.

"We need to know if anything was worrying Adam or if he was in any trouble prior to his death.

"Our main priority is to bring these offenders to justice and provide answers to Adam's family about what led to his death."

– Det Insp Fraser Wylie, Hertfordshire Police.

Police want to hear from witnesses who saw two men acting suspiciously in the Evans Wharf and Belswains Lane area around the time of the attack.

In particular, they would like to speak to anyone who saw two men wearing hoodies with the hoods up and their faces covered.
