Scotland Yard today named the victim as Joseph Cullimore after cops were called to reports of a stabbing at an address in Chingford in the early hours of yesterday morning.

A 35-year-old woman who was arrested yesterday has now been released pending further enquiries after police were called at around 4.40am in the morning.
