A man was stabbed to death on London's Oxford Street on Monday as bargain hunters crowded into the post-Christmas sales on one of Britain's busiest shopping thoroughfares, police said.

Police made a number arrests after the man, believed to be in his late teens or early 20s, was killed near Bond Street underground station.

A helicopter ambulance was sent to the incident but the man was pronounced dead at the scene, the Metropolitan Police said.

Tens of thousands of people defied a strike by London Underground train drivers to flock to the Boxing Day sales in the capital, with the department stores on Oxford Street a major attraction for many.
