Two teenagers were stabbed in a fight which broke out in Murray Grove on Friday night.

Officers were called just after 9pm to reports of a “fight in progress”, and found three injured youths, all believed to be aged 18.

Two of them were taken to an east London hospital for treatment to stab injuries, neither of which is thought to be life threatening or “life changing”, according to Scotland Yard.

The third - who was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm - was taken to a different east London hospital for treatment to a head injury, which is not believed to be serious.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the fight or the events leading up or immediately after it to contact Hackney Police via 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
