Police and medics from the London Ambulance Service were on the scene just after 8pm.

The man was treated in hospital.

His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, Scotland Yard said this morning.

Officers are investigating but have yet to arrest anyone.

The stabbing happened yards from Ettrick House, where a man was critically injured in August last year after falling from a fourth-floor window. Two people were subsequently arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
