A 15-year-old teenager was rushed to a major trauma hospital in a critical condition after being stabbed in the chest and back.

Video shared on social media showed police and paramedics next to a cordoned-off alleyway between Forest Gate Delivery Office and Durning Hall Community Centre in Earlham Grove, Forest Gate, on Friday.

An air ambulance is seen circulating in the sky overhead as one person can be heard saying “Oh my god, oh my god”.

A spokeswoman for London’s Air Ambulance said: “Our advanced trauma team were dispatched via aircraft by London Ambulance Service at 12.58pm today to an incident in the Forest Gate area.

“After treatment on scene the patient was transferred by road to a major trauma hospital, accompanied by London’s Air Ambulance medics.”

The boy remains in a stable condition in hospital.

A Met Police spokesman confirmed the stabbing.

Enquiries are on-going, no arrests have been made.
