A 29-year-old man has been charged with stabbing his father to death in Bromley, southeast London.

Police were called to Widmore Road just before 11pm on Tuesday where officers found 51-year-old Paul Maurice with multiple stab wounds.

He was given emergency medical treatment at the scene but was pronounced dead just before midnight.

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

Following an appearance at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, he was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on Monday 20 September.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of Paul Maurice’s death as stab wounds to his chest, the Metropolitan Police said.

His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers.
