An 18-year-old man has been stabbed to death in north-west London after being chased by two men, police have said.

David Alexander Headlam, from Harlesden, was found with stab wounds in Drayton Road, in Harlesden, in the early hours of Sunday.

He was taken to a central London hospital but died at 03:20 BST.

Officers believe Mr Headlam was walking home from a friend's house when he was approached by two men armed with knives.

A post-mortem examination at Northwick Park Hospital, in Harrow, gave the cause of death as haemorrhaging due to stab wounds to the thigh.

Officers were called to reports of a man assaulted at 01:10 BST on Sunday.

The teenager was approached by two black men who chased him down Sellons Avenue and into Drayton Road where he was stabbed, before the pair made off in a vehicle, police said.

No arrests have been made and officers are appealing for witnesses.

The police said the attack was "not thought to be gang-related at this time".
