A teenager was fighting for his life after being stabbed in Goswell Road on Friday evening.

A 17-year-old boy was knifed in the street at 11.10pm. No one has been arrested and police are appealing for information about the attack.

The boy was taken to an east London hospital where his condition was assessed as "critical" - but a Scotland Yard spokesperson said his health has since "improved" and he's now "critical but stable".

They added: "No arrests have been made at this early stage. Enquiries are underway to establish the full circumstances."

The victim's family have been informed.
