A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after four people were found dead with stab wounds in London’s south.
Emergency services were called about 1.40am today (10.40am AEST) to Delaford Road in Southwark, where police forced entry to a home.
In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said three women — in their 30s, 40s and 60s — and a man in his 60s found suffering apparent stab wounds were pronounced dead at the scene despite the best efforts of first responders.
Police said the suspect, who was in his late 20s and in custody at a south London police station, and the four who died, were believed to have known each other.
“Such terrible events are rare, but I know that will not diminish the shock that will be felt across London and the wider country,” police Chief Superintendent Colin Wingrove said.
“I assure you, this investigation will leave no stone unturned in discovering the facts.”
Police, including detectives from Specialist Crime, were investigating and contacting next of kin.
