A teenager was shot and another two stabbed as a mass brawl broke out in front of horrified onlookers enjoying one of the hottest days of the year in a Hackney park.

An 18-year-old was today in a serious but stable condition after being shot in the leg when violence broke out between up to 30 men in London Fields shortly before 5.30pm on Thursday.

Two other men, a 16-year-old and a 20-year-old, were treated in hospital for stab wounds. One was discharged from hospital yesterday and another is in a stable condition.

A 20-year-old man was arrested and is today being quizzed by cops over the incident at a Hackney Police station.
