A woman stabbed to death in south London on New Year's Day has been named by police as Charlotte Huggins.

The 33-year-old mother of one was found at a home on John Ruskin Street, Camberwell, at 04:20 GMT and died shortly afterwards.

A post-mortem examination gave her cause of death as a single stab wound.

A 34-year-old man initially arrested on suspicion of attempted murder has been released on bail until mid-January, the Metropolitan Police said.

It is thought the victim and the suspect knew each other, according to the force.
