Police make arrest over Battersea street murder

A man has been arrested in connection with the murder of a woman who was stabbed to death in a London street, police said on Sunday.

The 28-year-old man was arrested early on Sunday morning following the stabbing of 23-year-old Gemma Dorman, who was knifed in Battersea, southwest London, on Thursday evening and died later in hospital.

Police have recovered a knife but have not yet ascertained whether it was the murder weapon.

Knife crime has become a top political issue following a spate of violent deaths, mostly stabbings, on the streets of London so far this year.
