A man has died after being stabbed outside a Tube station in east London.

Police were called at 10.35pm on Friday evening after a man, believed to be in his 30s, was knifed in the chest on Cambridge Heath Road next to Bethnal Green underground station.

He was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead an hour later.
