A man stabbed to death with broken glass in south-west London has been named by police.

The police were called Richmond Bridge about 4am on Saturday.

They found 31-year-old Reece Newcombe who had suffered serious injuries.

Officers administered CPR before paramedics took over and transported the man to hospital, where he died later that morning.

Reece is believed to have been stabbed with broken glass, with a post-mortem examination to be held in due course.

No arrests have been made.

A GoFundMe to raise £1,000 for his daughter reached £31,000 by Sunday night.

It said: ‘Reece was a lovely, funny guy loved by all. He didn’t have a bad bone in his body. He made an impression on everyone he met.’

Chief Constable Lis Chapple, head of Richmond Police, said: “My thoughts go out to Reece and his family. We will do everything we can to support our colleagues in Specialist Crime as they work to establish what has happened here.

“A scene will remain in place and my officers will remain posted at the scene and in the area to speak to local residents about any concerns they may have, or information they may wish to share.”

Reece’s family have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.
