A man has been charged with stabbing his father to death in south-east London.

Police were called to Widmore Road, Bromley, just before 11pm on Tuesday, where they found Paul Maurice, 51, with multiple stab wounds.

His son, Sean Maurice, 29, was charged with his murder on Wednesday.

He appeared at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Thursday and was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on Monday.

Officers had attended the scene with London Ambulance Service paramedics and a London Air Ambulance crew.
