A woman has been charged with murder following the death of a man in Cricklewood on Friday.

Police were called to an address in Westcroft Close by ambulance services shortly after 8am on Friday morning to reports of a critically injured man. The man was treated by paramedics but died at the scene. 

A post-mortem on Saturday gave the cause of death as shock and hemorrhaging caused by a stab wound.
