The Metropolitan Police have named a man who died following a fight on a bridge in Richmond, London. Officers found Reece Newcombe, 31, on Richmond Bridge after responding to a call at 4.30am on Saturday, November 26. They administered CPR after discovering that Mr Newcombe, from Egham, was stabbed with a piece of broken glass.

Emergency services collected Newcombe and rushed him to hospital, where he died later that morning.

Police have now informed his next of kin, who are receiving support from specialists.

They will hold a post-mortem examination of Mr Newcombe’s body “in due course”.

Officers are yet to make any arrests in connection with the incident.

Case leads have issued an appeal for information.

They have issued a public plea for the “number of people” they believe saw the fight unfold to come forward.

Investigation lead Detective Chief Inspector Katherine Goodwin said some onlookers “may have recorded footage on their mobile phones”.

She added: “Anyone who has yet to speak to us is urged to come forward immediately.”

“My team are working to provide Reece’s family with answers and the public could have valuable information that will help our investigation.”

Richmond policing lead Lis Chapple said that officers would remain at the scene.

She said: “My thoughts are with Reece and his family.

“We will do everything we can to support our colleagues in Specialist Crime as they work to establish what has happened here.”

“A scene will remain in place and my officers will remain posted at the scene and in the area to speak to local people about any concerns they have, or information they might want to share.”
