Four people have been stabbed to death at a home in south-east London.
The victims, three women and a man, were all pronounced dead at the scene in Delaford Road, Bermondsey, in the early hours of Monday.
Pictures from the scene showed part of the road closed off with metal hoarding, and a number of forensic tents had been put up.
