A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a lorry driver was fatally stabbed in Bexley.

Vitali Skrypniak, 45, was found injured outside Belvedere Railway Station in south London on September 18.

Paramedics tried desperately to save the Ukranian driver who died at the scene from a single stab wound to the chest.

Police were called at around 10.15pm and an investigation was launched.

A 27-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody.

Mr Skrypniak, who had a wife and son, arrived in the UK via Dover on August 15 to transport goods for a logistics company.

He had parked up for the night in Hailey Road and was off shift when he was attacked.

It is thought he spoke with other lorry drivers and bought a few drinks before he was stabbed.
