A 74-year-old man with head injuries was found at an address at around 5am on Friday and pronounced dead at the scene. Detective Inspector Steven Keogh said: “At this very early stage we retain an open mind as to the circumstance surrounding this death, but I can confirm that we are not seeking any other persons in connection with this isolated incident which involved one victim.” A 23-year-old man known to him was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder.

Four hours earlier, a young man was shot dead outside a north London Tube station.

The victim, in his 20s, collapsed at a bus stop opposite Turnpike Lane station around 1.10am.
