Murder investigation as man killed during fight ‘in front of crowd’ on London bridge

A murder investigation has been launched after a man died following a fight on a bridge in London.

Police were called to the scene in Richmond Bridge, south-west London, at about 4am on Saturday and found a man in his early 30s who had suffered serious injuries.

The Metropolitan Police said officers administered CPR before paramedics took over and transported the man to hospital, where he died later that morning.

The victim’s next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

There have been no arrests over the alleged murder and a post-mortem examination is yet to be performed.

The Met Police believe the incident happened in front of a crowd and some onlookers may have filmed it on their mobile phones.

They have urged any witness to get in touch with information that could help the investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Katherine Goodwin, who is leading the investigation, said: “We believe a number of people watched the incident unfold and some onlookers may have recorded footage on their mobile phones.

“Anyone who has yet to speak to us is urged to come forward immediately.

“My team are working to provide the deceased man’s family with answers and the public could have valuable information that will help our investigation.”

Richmond policing lead Chief Superintendent Lis Chapple added: “My thoughts are with the man who died and his family.

“We will do everything we can to support our colleagues in specialist crime as they work to establish what has happened here.

“A scene will remain in place and my officers will remain posted at the scene and in the area to speak to local people about any concerns they have, or information they might want to share.”
