Police are attempting to trace a possible second victim of a stabbing after a man was found with stab wounds in south London.

A residential street in Peckham was cordoned off by detectives after the man was found stabbed on Saturday afternoon.

Emergency services were called to Cronin Street at 4pm and discovered the victim, aged in his mid-thirties.

Paramedics rushed the victim to a central London hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition.

A crime scene has been erected on the road and Southwark detectives are appealing for any witnesses of the stabbing to come forward.

Officers believe there may be a second injured person who fled the scene before emergency services arrived.

No one has been arrested in connection with the incident.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information is asked to call Southwark CID officers on 0207 232 6258.
