Two men have been taken to hospital after being stabbed just minutes apart this afternoon.
Police were called to reports of a fight in Waddington Street, Maryland, at 1.40pm where a man, believed to be in his early 20s, was found with stab wounds to his back.
London’s Air Ambulance was called to the scene, landing in the playground of a nearby primary school.
Just a minute afterwards, officers were also called to reports of a fight in Cruikshank Road, Maryland.
A man, believed to be in his late teens, was found with stab wounds to his legs and buttocks.
