A man stabbed to death with broken glass in south-west London has been named as a new dad.

Reece Newcombe, 31, suffered serious injuries on Richmond Bridge at about 4am on Saturday.

He was given CPR at the scene by police before paramedics took him to hospital where he later died.

A GoFundMe to raise £1,000 for his daughter, who was born in June, hit £31,000 by Sunday evening.

It said: ‘Reece was a lovable, fun guy loved by all. He didn’t have a bad bone in his body. He made an impact on everyone he met.’

Reece, from Egham, was friends with Ian Wright, and helped train the ex-Arsenal footballer for a charity boxing match.

Reece is believed to have been stabbed with a piece of broken glass, with a post-mortem examination to be held in due course.

No arrests have been made.

Detective Chief Inspector Katherine Goodwin said: ‘We believe a number of people watched the incident unfold and some onlookers may have recorded footage on their mobile phones.

‘Anyone who has yet to speak to us is urged to come forward immediately. My team are working to provide Reece’s family with answers and the public could have valuable information that will help our investigation.’

Chief Superintendent Lis Chapple said: ‘My thoughts are with Reece and his family. We will do everything we can to support our colleagues in Specialist Crime as they work to establish what has happened here.

‘A scene will remain in place and my officers will remain posted at the scene and in the area to speak to local people about any concerns they have, or information they might want to share.’
