Police have said they are likely dealing with a "triple homicide investigation" after the three men, aged in their 20s or 30s, were pronounced dead at the scene on Elmstead Road.

Officers and the London Ambulance Service were called to the area at 7.38pm on Sunday.

Police are in the process of establishing formal identification and informing all next of kin.

The Metropolitan Police said post-mortems will be arranged in due course.
