A man has been charged with the murder of Erith man Harold Muzeremwi and the attempted murder of another man.

The 20-year-old was stabbed at an address in Kingsley Wood Drive in Mottingham on Saturday afternoon.

Delaney Barnett is due to appear in Bromley Magistrates Court this morning charged with the crimes.

Emergency services were called to the scene at 3.05pm but could not save Mr Muzeremwi.

A 24-year-old man was taken to a south London hospital and is in a critical condition.

Detectives are keen to trace a black Volkswagen Gulf that they believe may be linked to the murder. They think it remains somewhere in south-east London.

Anyone with information should call the incident room at Lewisham police station on 0208 721 4961 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
