A pedestrian has died after being hit by a van believed to have been fleeing the scene of a stabbing in south-east London, according to police.

Officers were called to a pub in Chislehurst at about 8.50pm on Friday following reports of men fighting.

A few minutes later, a man was killed by a van less than a mile from the scene.

The van did not stop and was later found abandoned close to where the collision occurred.

Two men were found at the nearby Gordon Arms pub with stab injuries and were taken to hospital. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
