Police were called at about 1.40am to reports of a disturbance at a residential address on Delaford Road, in Bermondsey, south London, and forced entry.

Inside, according to a statement from the Met, officers found four people "suffering what are believed to be stab injuries".

"Despite the efforts of emergency services", the Met said all four people – three women, aged in their 60s, 40s and 30s, and a man in his 60s - were pronounced dead at the scene.

The Met said it was in the process of contacting next of kin and post-mortem examinations will be arranged in due course.

Met Police Commander Colin Wingrove said officers made a "dreadful discovery".

"This is a deeply shocking incident and we will do everything we can to provide support to everyone affected at this difficult time. "Such terrible events are rare but this will not diminish the shock that will be felt across London and beyond," he said, according to Sky News.

The victims' names have not yet been released.
