A man has pleaded guilty to murdering a 25-year-old woman at a home in west London.

Billy White, 22, of Pinkwell Lane, Hillingdon admitted killing Lucy Ayris.

Police were called on March 7 to reports of a woman with multiple stab wounds.

The air ambulance was sent to the scene and she was taken to a hospital in north London where she was pronounced dead.

Crime has risen in almost half of London's 32 boroughs in the past year.

The latest Metropolitan Police figures shows the borough of Hillingdon featured the highest crime rise with a 14% year on year hike.

Whilst crime across the capital is still marginally down on the previous year, violent crime has risen 27% over the past year leading to concerns that the most serious crimes are on the rise.

She has diabetes but doesn't have any insulin with her.

Mrs Davies' daughter has appealed to her mum and anyone with information to get in touch,

"Mum, please contact me or contact 999, just to let us know you are okay. This is the fifth day without knowing your whereabouts. We miss you so much. Please come home mum, we are worried sick about you...

...Mum has been missing since New Year's Day, she has possibly walked to Stockley Park or towards Uxbridge via the Grand Union Canal. People around the canal would know my mum from walking our dog, 'Beth.'"
