A driver who died after he was stabbed and crashed into a London bus during rush hour has been named as 22-year-old Femi Junaid.

Police said Mr Junaid, who was from Peckham, south London, died in hospital last night following the crash near Stockwell underground station shortly before 5.45pm.

Police officers found Mr Junaid inside his car suffering from stab wounds.

The Met's homicide and major crime command is investigating and says Mr Junaid's death could be linked to an earlier report of disorder on a bus nearby.

"Detectives believe Femi was stabbed in Clapham Road, some 50 yards from the scene of the collision, before getting into his car and colliding with the bus," a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.

"We are not aware of any other people injured and we do not believe anyone else was in the car with Femi at the time of the collision."

A post-mortem examination has yet to be held.
