Two teenage boys are in hospital after a double stabbing at West Ham station.

The 17-year-olds were both believed to be in a stable condition after a fight inside the station around 6.50pm on Saturday, September 5.

British Transport Police said it appears that two males met as they passed each other on a stairway at the station.

After what seems to have been a row, one male suffered stab wounds and collapsed at the station.

The other male, who also had stabbing injuries, got on to a train to Abbey Road DLR Station.
