POLICE are hunting two gangs who attacked each other with knives and poles in a quiet Finsbury street in broad daylight.

The rival groups went head to head in Northampton Road at 2.05pm last Tuesday.

Police were called but the youths had disappeared by the time officers arrived. The area was searched and an 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug.
