Detectives are appealing for information after a man died following a fight outside a nightclub.

The 33-year-old victim had been stabbed in the chest when police found him on the pavement in Charterhouse Street, Farringdon, shortly after 8.15am on Sunday.

He was rushed to an east London hospital but doctors were unable to help and he was pronounced dead about 90 minutes later.

A 25-year-old man is being held on suspicion of murder by City of London Police, while two other men and two women were also arrested.

Det Ch Insp John Osibote, from City of London Police, said: “The group were seen to leave the nightclub and move out onto Charterhouse Street, where the trouble quickly escalated.

“It is now important for our investigation for people who saw the incident, witnessed the group during the course of the night or have any other information linked to the circumstances of this man’s death to contact us immediately.”

Anyone with information should call police on 020 7601 2222 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
