The Met Police said the attacker was believed to have been wearing a grey or blue hoodie.

Det Ch Insp Richard Leonard said: "While there has been no arrest at this time, we are following a number of active lines of inquiry based on CCTV, forensic analysis and local engagement, and my team still needs to hear from anyone who has information concerning this incident."

He urged any witnesses to contact officers.

The killing is the 29th fatal stabbing in London so far this year.
