Two people have been assaulted outside City and Islington College in Goswell Road.

Police taped off adjacent Owen Street, which connects the road to St John Street, and an ambulance and police car were seen outside the college.

A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said cops were called just before 3pm. She said two males had been assaulted but could not confirm their ages.

City and Islington College confirmed an “incident” had taken place but could not immediately provide any further details.

London Ambulance Service has been approached for comment.
