Police were called at about 6.50pm on Friday to reports of a man stabbed in Charteris Road, near the junction with Lennox Road.

Officers and medics attended and the victim died about 50 minutes later at the scene.

No arrests have been made and police are investigating.

A delivery driver at the scene said he was friends with the victim but didn't want to be named. He told the Gazette: "He was doing his deliveries and there was a stranger's car. They started with an argument and the other guy came out and stabbed him. But it's not just him, a lot of delivery drivers are suffering from these kind of attacks."

Another delivery driver, Massy, 23, added: "We are all heartbroken, this country is not safe anymore."

A bystander said: "I honestly thought there had been a terrorist attack or something, there were so many police cars. It was terrifying.

"There were loads of police cars, probably around 10 and an ambulance on the street where the World's End is.

"By the police tape were loads of kids, definitely more than six, craning their necks to see what was happening."
