A SECOND man arrested in connection with a fatal stabbing in Walthamstow has been released on bail.

The 21-year-old was seized in Stratford yesterday (Thursday May 31) in connection with the death of 36-year-old O'Neil Irwin.

But police said today he had now been released and been asked to return to officers in mid-July.

Mr Irwin died after being knifed in Upper Walthamstow in broad daylight on May 21.

He flagged down a passing police patrol car in Ulverston Road but paramedics were unable to save him.

Police previously arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with the incident.

He is also on police bail until July.

A post mortem concluded that Mr Irwin, who lived at various addresses in Walthamstow, died of a single stab wound to the heart.

A man was reportedly seen cycling away from the scene after the attack.

Witnesses or anyone with information is urged to call police on 020 8721 4906.

Seems all to easy to take away a life these days with little concequences.
