A man has been charged with murder after a 60-year-old man was stabbed to death in Thornton Heath just before Christmas.

John Kennett died from his injuries after being attacked in Woodcroft Road on the evening of December 23.

Kenny Pitcher, 51, who lives in Woodcroft Road, was arrested at the scene and later bailed under investigation.

He has now been charged with murder.

A 41-year-old man arrested days after the incident has been released with no further action, while a 33-year-old man arrested in January has been released under investigation.
