Appeal after teen stabbed in Beckton

DETECTIVES investigating the stabbing of a 19-year-old man in Beckton are appealing for witnesses.

Police were called to reports of a serious assault outside the Asda supermarket in Beckton.

It later emerged that a 19-year-old, his dog and a friend, were attacked by a group of about 10 men as they walked along the footpath at the rear entrance of the store.
