Video footage shows a person armed with a large blade launching an attack on a man who has fallen to the ground outside Browns Strip Club, just off Shoreditch High Street.

Other people are heard screaming as the attacker then flees the scene.

Police said three teenage boys were arrested in connection with a stabbing in the early hours of Sunday.
