Scene: The incident happened in Lordship Road: 999London

A teenager was today in hospital after being stabbed in a north London street.

The 15-year-old boy was found by paramedics and police in Lordship Road, Stoke Newington, shortly before 10.20pm on Monday.

He was rushed to an east London hospital but his injuries are not life threatening or life changing.

Lordship Road and nearby Lordship Park were both closed last night following the incident.

It came after two cars, a blue Renault hatchback and a silver hatchback, collided on Lordship Park before reports of a “fight”. Police believe the two incidents are linked.

A Scotland Yard spokesman today said they were called by the London Ambulance Service to the incident. No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.

It came after a weekend of violence in London. On Saturday night a one-year-old boy died after an alleged attack in a Finsbury Park flat which also left his twin sister critically injured. Bidhya Sagar Das, 33, of Wilberforce Road, Finsbury Park, has been charged with murder and attempted murder.

In separate incidents an 18-year-old man died after being shot in the head in Barking, east London, in a suspected gang-related attack on Sunday while hours earlier a murder probe was launched after a man in his 20s was found dead in a flat in Hoxton.

Anyone with information about the Stoke Newington stabbing should call Hackney CID via 101. To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
