No arrests have been made as part of the murder investigation. Malcolm’s next of kin has been informed.

Det Ch Insp John Massey said he “didn’t believe” anyone involved had travelled on the Tube.

“There were a large number of people present when emergency services arrived at the scene,” he said.

“Although many have come forward, I want to ensure that we have spoken to all potential witnesses.”

Speaking at the time, charity director Robin Pritchard, 47, said he saw the victim lying on the ground in a “pool of blood” as someone gave him CPR.

“It was strangely calm and quiet. I think everyone was in shock,” he added.

Over the weekend floral tributes have been left near to the spot where Malcolm was stabbed.
