A murder investigation has been launched after a 17-year-old was killed, and an 18-year-old was critically injured, in a stabbing in east London.

Metropolitan Police said officers were called to a “disturbance involving a large number of people” on Lichfield Road in Bow just after midnight on the morning of Sunday (4 September).

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Rogers said: “I am aware of reports saying that about a hundred people, armed with weapons were involved ... this information does not appear to be wholly accurate.”

Footage shows the scene as investigations were carried out.
