A murder probe has been launched after a fatal stabbing in north London.
Police say three teenagers were arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was found with multiple stab wounds just before 7pm on Tuesday night by officers responding to reports of an assault.
Two boys, aged 17 and 16, were arrested near to the scene.
An 18-year-old man was later arrested at a residential address in Islington.
Police say the victim, who has not been named, was pronounced dead at the scene on Caledonian Road, near the junction with Tilloch Street.
The victim is the eighth person to be murdered in London this month.
