Two women have been arrested after a man was stabbed near a takeaway in the early hours of this morning.

Police were called to the McDonald’s branch in Barking Road, Canning Town, at 1.19am following reports of a stabbing which took place near the fast food restaurant.

A 35-year-old man was found injured and taken to hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition.

Two women, aged 36 and 32, were arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and taken to a police station where they remain in custody.
