Officers, the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance all attended. Despite the efforts of the emergency services, Mr Hurlington died at the scene.

The investigation is being led by detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command and they have appealed for anyone with information to make contact.

A post-mortem examination has now taken place and established cause of death as blood loss following a stab wound to the arm.

Detective Chief Inspector Linda Bradley, leading the investigation, said: “First and foremost, my thoughts are with Milton’s family and friends at what is an incredibly difficult time. Specialist support is being given by my team, and they will continue to receive this as the investigation progresses.

“At present we believe he sustained his injuries in King Edward VII park and then made his way to the Dene, where residents discovered him and called the emergency services.

“I am really keen to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything out of the ordinary in the park and surrounding areas on Monday 17 July between 6pm and 10:45pm to come forward.
