“Following the fatal stabbing of a 29-year-old man in Rosebery Road, Hounslow, yesterday (Monday) I would like to express my sympathy on behalf of the Council to the family of the victim.
 
“Sadly, knife crime has claimed another victim following what appears to have been a fight between two groups. 

“The Metropolitan Police has launched a murder investigation and I hope that this will quickly lead to the murderer being brought to justice. Anyone with information about the incident should contact the Police. 

“Overall, our Borough remains a very safe place to live, making incidents like this all the more tragic.”
