A teenager was stabbed last night after violence broke out at a party on the Andover Estate.

Police swarmed the Holloway estate, dispersing party-goers, after reports of a disturbance at 9.49pm.

The 15-year-old male suffered a stab wound to the leg and was taken to hospital where his condition was said to be not life-threatening.

It comes after four youths were wounded when shots were fired at a party in July last year, where nearly 400 youths were celebrating the lifting of an anti-social dispersal order, which was put in place after the brutal murder of 21-year-old Andrew Jaipaul in 2011.

A police spokesperson said: “Officers attended and found a 15-year-old male suffering a stab wound to the leg. He has been taken to hospital where his condition is not life-threatening.

“Police assisted in dispersing those in attendance at the party.

“Enquiries into the assault continue. There have been no arrests at this time.”
