Two teens were stabbed off Essex Road last night.
Police, paramedics and London's Air Ambulance were scrambled to Popham Road at about 9pm, amid reports of a knife attack.
An 18-year-old was found with stab injuries at the scene. Another boy, 18, was found suffering from a single knife wound.
Both were taken to hospital but a Met Police spokesperson said: "Neither are believed to be in a life-threatening condition".
Following the stabbings, a Section 60 order was authorised for the N1, N5, N7 and EC1 postcode areas of Islington until 5am this morning, which gave police more freedom to stop and search people.
