Police were called just before 8am and the man who is aged in his 40s has been taken to hospital.

Cordons have been put in place on the west side of the high street next to YumYum Thai restaurant and the lower part of Cazenove Road as officers work out how the victim sustained his injury.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard told the Gazette: "A man was found with a stabbing and officers are trying to find where he was attacked.

"It doesn't look like it's life threatening."
