A man was tasered by police in Stamford Hill last night (Monday) and a road remains closed this morning as forensics officers carry out an investigation at the scene.

Armed officers were called to a fight between a group men in Egerton Road at about 7.30pm, and tasered a man they were trying to restrain.

The man did not require hospital treatment, and was arrested with three other men.

All four are now in custody at an east London police station.

Another man was taken by ambulance to an east London hospital and his condition was described as “stable” by a Hackney Police spokeswoman.
