Two male victims were found with stab injuries in Banfield Road. They were aged eighteen and 23. Both were hospitalised.

Detectives confirmed the eighteen-year-old’s injuries are “not life-threatening”, but the 23-year-old is still being treated for “serious injuries”.

A third victim was found in Brookstone Court. He is eighteen. Police are currently waiting for an update on his condition.

A Met spokesperson said officers are still working to establish whether there are more victims.

A section 60 was in place from 7pm last night until 2am this morning.
