A woman has been stabbed to death in Surrey in broad daylight. 

Police were called to London Road in Ewell at around 3pm yesterday (February 8) to find the victim in her 30s in the road. 

It followed a report that a man had got out of a car and stabbed her. 

Two men have been arrested in connection with the death; one on suspicion of murder, while a second man has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

These arrests did not happen at the scene.

Surrey Police say a cordon will remain in place for a number of hours today (February 9).

Police believe the victim and suspect were known to each other. 

Chief Inspector Michael Hodder described the incident as "tragic and shocking" and said:

 "Our thoughts are with her friends and family at this time.

We realise there will be a number of questions about what has happened which we will try to answer when we can and would ask the public not to speculate.

“We have a number of officers in the area to both investigate and support the community following this attack which we believe would have been witnessed by a number of people."

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson confirmed an air ambulance was sent to the scene.

They added: "Sadly, despite the efforts of medics, a person died at the scene."

Surrey Police is urging anyone who witnessed what happened to call them immediately on 10, quoting the reference number PR/P19030779.
