A man has potentially life-changing injuries after being stabbed near a doctor’s surgery in Canonbury this morning.
Elizabeth Avenue Group Practice has been taped off, and police and ambulance crews are now at the scene.
The surgery’s manager told the Gazette one of their patients had been stabbed.
Scotland Yard said officers were first called to Rotherfield Court at 8.41am. Shortly after police were called again to the surgery 150 metres up the road, just past Rotherfield Primary School.
A spokesman said officers had arrested a man on suspicion of GBH.
