SIX Teenagers Are Stabbed Within 90 Minutes Of Each Other In FOUR Separate Knife Attacks Across London

London stabbings: 6 teens stabbed in 4 separate knife attacks
Six teenagers were stabbed last night in four separate attacks across London.The city's crime rate is at a seven-year high with police investigating 55 murders since January. The first incident happened in Mile End, east London, just after 6pm, when three teenagers were hospitalised - two of them with serious injuries - after a knife attack in front of horrified witnesses (pictured left, the scene after the attack). 

Less than an hour later, a teenage boy was stabbed near East India Dock in Poplar, two miles away (bottom right). By 7pm, a fifth victim, described as a young teenage boy, was stabbed outside HSBC bank on Ealing Broadway in West London (top right). At the same time, across the city in Newham (inset) a 13-year-old boy was stabbed after he was reportedly set upon by a gang of youths. Three teenage boys have been arrested on suspicion of GBH with intent.


Police have arrested one youth for attempted murder and taken four more into custody on suspicion of GBH with intent. 
Pictures show the bloodied aftermath of a stabbing in Mile End, which saw two seriously injured in a brutal attack in broad daylight.

Clothes and rubbish have been left strewn across the street as police have cordoned off the Roman Road junction while they carry out their investigation. 
Tonight's events come as London is amidst a violent crime crisis, with gun and knife attacks at their highest levels since 2010. 
Fifty-five people have been murdered in the capital since January, with 13 people killed within two weeks last month.

Earlier today Tottenham Labour MP David Lammy described the London street violence as the 'worst I've ever seen it.' 
He told the BBC's Today programme the violence was being driven by turf wars between drug gangs, adding that drugs were as 'prolific as ordering a pizza'.

He warned that the police had 'lost control of that drugs market' adding: 'I've been an MP now for 18 years and I'm afraid what we're seeing today is the worst I've ever seen it.'
And tonight his words rang true when six youths were attacked with knives within the space of 90 minutes. 

The first incident saw a teenage boy near East India Dock in east London knifed down just after 5.30pm. 
Thirty minutes later, three teenagers were stabbed with two seriously injured two miles away in Mile End. 

At 6.57pm, a 13-year-old boy was badly hurt when a blade was plunged into him after he was allegedly set upon by a group of youths. 
And eight minutes after, a teenager was brutally stabbed in front of horrified shoppers outside HSBC bank on Ealing Broadway. 
The Met Police said four of the victims - including the 13-year-old and two 15-year-olds from Mile End - were hospitalised with serious injuries.

Shocking video footage filmed by a witness in Mile End tonight shows the aftermath of a stabbing with seriously injured two teenage boys.
Paramedics can be seen treating one party, who laid beneath a foil blanket as police officers appeared to restrain another person.   
A spokesman for the force said one male was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and a second taken into custody of suspicion of GBH.
