Police responded to a call at 1800hrs on December 12th following reports of a dead man at an address in Ormond Yard behind Jermyn Street, SW1.

Officers and ambulance services attended and found the body of a man, aged 70, believed to have been stabbed. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin have been informed.

A 44-year-old man was arrested nearby on suspicion of murder and taken into custody at a central London police station where he remains at this time.
