Images of Pakistani politician Imran Farooq just before he was stabbed to death outside his home have been released as more details of the brutal murder emerged.

Dr Farooq, 50, died from stab wounds and head injuries after an ambush as he returned from work on September 16.

CCTV footage of his final hours, released by police on Wednesday, includes images of him at Edgware underground station in north London as he travelled to work on the morning of his death.

In the last moments of his life, he is seen walking down Station Road towards his home in Green Lane, less than 10 minutes before the shock attack just before 5.30pm.

This may have been carried out by up to four Asian men who had been in vehicles or on foot near Dr Farooq's home at different times of the day, police said.

Officers revealed details of two vehicles seen around Green Lane and outside Dr Farooq's home at the time of the killing, including a silver seven-seater people-carrier with green minicab stickers in the window. The driver, and sole occupant, is described as an Asian man aged between 32 and 40.
