Teenager stabbed to death and another critically ill after ‘highly worrying incident’ in east London | UK News

A teenager has been stabbed to death and another is critically ill in hospital after a “highly worrying incident”.

Scotland Yard said they found two males with stab wounds after being called to a disturbance around midnight involving a “large group of people” in Lichfield Road, Tower Hamlets, east London.

A murder investigation is now under way but no arrests have been made yet, say police.

The teenager who died is believed to be aged 17, while the one taken to hospital is 18.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Rogers of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command said: “This is a highly worrying incident that has left one young man dead and another fighting for his life in hospital.

“I am aware of reports saying that about a hundred people, armed with weapons were involved. This information does not appear to be wholly accurate.

“We know a significant number of people were caught up in this incident but not necessarily directly involved or armed with weapons.”

The force said it has has yet to arrest anyone in connection with the incident.

Anyone who has information that can help, including pictures or footage of the incident, is asked to call the Metropolitan Police major incident room on 020 8345 3715 quoting reference Operation Wildcast.

A former Gogglebox star Sandi Bogle has told Sky News she feels ‘sick’ that no one has faced justice over the death of her nephew Bjorn Brown who was stabbed to death in Croydon in March 2017.

The incident comes hours after a boy, believed to be 12, was stabbed in the east London borough of Newham.

The victim was found in Plaistow and treated at the scene.

Two suspects have since been arrested, one on suspicion of GBH and another for affray, the Met confirmed.

Former Gogglebox star Sandi Bogle exclusively told Sky News of her ‘disgust’ that no one has faced justice over her nephew Bjorn Brown’s murder.

Father-of-one Mr Brown was stabbed to death in Croydon, south London in March 2017 and died from his injuries five days later.

Ms Bogle spoke out as new figures revealed 350 killings have gone unsolved in London in the past two decades – including cases in which victims have been shot, stabbed, strangled and drowned.

Meanwhile a former police constable told Sky News how a huge backlog of cases in Britain’s courts – said to be around 60,000 – could be responsible for a drop in people being jailed for knife crime.

Peter Fahy, ex-chief constable for Greater Manchester Police, said: “We need firmer police action, but there is also real concern about the huge backlog of cases in the courts.

“It’s no good police going out to arrest people if they’re then out on bail and it takes years to get people into court.”

“One male has been arrested on suspicion of GBH and another for affray.”

Police are continuing to investigate the incident.

Three murder arrests after man, 60, dies at scene of fight in east London | UK News

A murder investigation has been launched after a 60-year-old man died at the scene of a fight in east London.

The Metropolitan Police were called at just gone midnight on Sunday to reports of a fight at the junction of Ford Road and Broad Street in Dagenham, east London.

Officers and the London Ambulance Service rushed to the location, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of murder, and detectives “remain keen to hear from any witnesses”.

The victim has not been formally identified, and his name has not been released, but officers say his next of kin have been spoken to and are being supported by specialist officers.

“A post-mortem examination will be held in due course,” the police added.

Two of the three men, a 26-year-old and a 36-year-old, were arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder and remain in police custody.

The third man, 23, was later arrested on suspicion of murder and is also being held in police custody.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Crime Command are leading the investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Kate Blackburn said: “At this stage we believe an altercation happened between a group of men and the victim, who was with a friend. This then became physical, leading to the victim sadly suffering fatal injuries.

“We have three men in custody, but would still like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or the lead up to it as soon as possible.”

Anyone who can help is asked to contact police on 101 and give reference 36/14AUG. To remain anonymous, contact independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

South East Water announces hosepipe and sprinkler ban for customers in Kent and Sussex | Business News

South East Water has announced a ban on hosepipe and sprinkler use for its customers in Kent and Sussex.

The ban will start on 12 August, with an end date that has yet to be decided.

It comes just days after Southern Water announced the first hosepipe ban of the year for customers in Hampshire and Isle of Wight. That ban starts on Friday.

South East Water said its ban is necessary to make sure there is enough water for essential use and to protect the environment, adding that the ban would reduce the amount of water taken from “already stressed local water sources”.

It said: “This has been a time of extreme weather conditions across the UK.

“Official figures show this is the driest July on record since 1935 and the period between November 2021 and July 2022 has been the driest eight-month stint since 1976.

“During July in the South East, we have only seen 8% of average rainfall for the month, and the long term forecast for August and September is for similar weather.”

It added: “The demand for water this summer has broken all previous records, including the COVID lockdown heatwave.

“We have been producing an additional 120 million litres of water a day to supply our customers, which is the equivalent of supplying a further four towns the size of Maidstone or Eastbourne, daily.”

South East Water supplies 520 million litres of water every day to 2.2 million customers.

The water is drawn from more than 250 boreholes, six rivers, and six reservoirs.

The company’s website said that all customers in Kent and Sussex will be affected by the ban except those on the priority service register.

Where does our water come from, where do we use it most and what happens during a drought?

Customers in Berkshire and Hampshire will not be affected, it said, adding: “Whilst demand in our supply areas in Berkshire and Hampshire has also increased considerably, we have not suffered from the same water supply issues as experienced in Kent and Sussex.

“For the time being, we are in a position that we can continue to ask our customers to apply voluntary restraint on the amount of water they use at home.

“We are continuing to monitor the situation, and will advise customers if circumstances change.”

The ban means it is forbidden to use a hosepipe that is connected to a mains water supply, including garden sprinklers.

Breaking the rules could result in a fine of up to £1,000.

Shuja Khan, chief executive of data company Arqiva, said having a water smart meter can help people control their use.

He said: “Most people have no idea how much water they use every day because it can be really hard to conceptualise.

“For example, for every 10 minutes of use, the average hosepipe uses 170 litres of water, or almost 19 flushes of a toilet in the same timeframe.

“If people knew that just one hour of hosepipe use was equivalent to the same amount of water that the average family of four consumes over two days, they might reconsider their gardening patterns.”
