Officers are still searching for a suspect who fled a ‘road rage’ incident in Welling, yesterday, after stabbing the other man involved.

“A crime scene remains in place, and we have not made any arrests but enquiries are continuing.”

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson, added: “We were called at 1pm to reports of a stabbing.

“We sent a number of resources to the scene which included an incident response officer, a single responder in a car, an ambulance crew, an advanced paramedic, and London’s Air Ambulance.
