His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The street and nearby railway station were cordoned off by police as officers carried out their investigations late into the night.

Witnesses took to social media to describe seeing a swarm of emergency services in the area and a forensics tent set up.

Dianne Adams, who posted an image of the white tent on Twitter, wrote: “Awful to see this at the Earlsfield Pub. Feel very, very sad. This is bad.”

Hannah Barham-Brown tweeted: “Avoid #Earlsfield station if you can - lots of cops and police tape, can't get very far. Looks pretty horrendous.”

Stephen Williams said: "A stabbing near the Earlsfield. Does not look good given the white tent. Shocking: hope it is not fatal."

Bertie Garbutt wrote on Twitter: "Major incident at #Earlsfield either in or just outside @TheEarlsfield. Road under the bridge closed so no way to cross the railway. Avoid."

Police said no arrests have been made and enquiries continue.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or tweet @MetCC.
