This interactive map showing London's murder hotspots is a teeny bit terrifying

We love a map – tube maps, interactive maps, Harry Potter maps – we're into all of them. But this may just be the creepiest map we've ever come across. A new interactive murder map aims to record every killing that's taken place in London, using information from the Metropolitan Police, the Crown Prosecution Service, media coverage and court records.

The map's data goes way back to the nineteenth century, but it only shows killings from 2008 to the present day. And if you really want to fuel your morbid curiosity, you can filter the data by murder weapon, including knives, guns and poison. Just try to resist looking too closely at your local area if you're likely to get freaked out by a grisly murder on your doorstep.

Explore the map for yourself.

Stay safe in London with this handy new app.
