An 18 – year-old man has been stabbed to death in a west London council’s central offices.

The victim was stabbed in the chest in Hillingdon Civic Center on High Street, Uxbridge, at about 16: 40 GMT.

He was taken to hospital but pronounced dead less than an hour later. Another teenage boy was also stabbed during the attack.

A 17 – year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder, Scotland Yard said.

The Met has granted itself enhanced stop-and-search powers, under section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act.

This allows officers to search anyone in a designated area without “reasonable grounds”.

Det Ch Insp Noel McHugh described the stabbing as “a tragic loss of life”.
