A stabbing in Newington Green left a teenage boy in hospital late last night.
Police taped off King Henry’s Walk in the aftermath of the attack, which happened at about 10pm. Officers have yet to arrest anyone over the incident.
The victim, 18, was this morning not thought to be seriously hurt.
The Met on Monday began a week-long operation to get blades off the capital’s streets using stop-and-search, knife bins, weapon searches, and swoops on people already thought to be associated with knife and weapon crime.
It comes less than two months after a spate of stabbings in Islington towards the end of August.
