A man in his 20s was fatally stabbed yesterday evening, in broad daylight, outside McDonalds on Oxford Street.
The incident happened at the beginning of rush hour, around 17.00, when the area must have been packed with hot, shoppy people who could have witnessed the incident. Police are talking to those on the scene and examining CCTV footage. It seems the young man had been in McDonalds and was subsequently involved in an altercation outside. Paramedics attended the scene but the victim died in hospital.
Oxford Street is closed between Oxford Circus and Tottenham Court Road and buses are still on diversion due to this incident so be prepared for bus hell round there or wear flat shoes and walk.
