A man has been charged with the murder of a university lecturer who was stabbed to death in a park near a south London Tube station.

Daniel Young, 30, died in Kendor Gardens, Morden, during rush hour on 19 January on his way to work.

Mark Loveridge, 37, of Borough Road, Mitcham, south London, is also charged with causing grievous bodily harm to a 23-year-old man on the same day.

The Met said he would appear before Bromley magistrates on Friday.

Mr Young, who was originally from Paignton, Devon, was on the way to his second day working at Coventry University's London Campus International.

People have left flowers and tributes in the park, which is used by commuters as a short cut to Morden Tube and Morden Road tram stop.
