A man in his 30s has been left with potentially life-changing injuries after being stabbed in the arm in Hoxton.

Police were called to Sherborne Street just before 8.30pm.

The victim was knifed in the arm in what is the sixth serious stabbing in two weeks on the Hackney and Islington border.

Two people, one a 15-year-old girl, have been arrested on suspicion of causing GBH. Both are in custody.

Following the attack, police set up a 48-hour dispersal zone around Rosemary Gardens, giving them powers to move on large groups of youngsters and ban them from the area.
