A gay man was stabbed to death at an address in Tottenham, north London on Saturday.

Daryl Phillips, 39, had been stabbed in the leg and was treated at the scene at Avenue Road, but was later pronounced dead at 3.35am.

Robin Clarke, 39, from Avenue Road, has been charged with murder and was due to appear at Enfield Magistrates’ Court today.

A neighbour of Mr Phillps in Nighton Park Road told the Bromley News he was gay and would often be seen walking his dog with his partner, believed to be a plumber.

He added: “I didn’t even know his name but it is a shock to hear he has died.”
