Two teenagers in life-threatening condition after 'linked' stabbings

Two boys are fighting for their lives after stabbings police say are connected

Two teenagers were stabbed minutes apart on Monday in Islington, London.

A 17-year-old boy was found with stab wounds on Fairbridge Road shortly after 5.30pm and 10 minutes later an 18-year-old was found stabbed on Sussex Close, less than half a mile away.

Police say both are in hospital in a life-threatening condition.


No arrests have been made and Scotland Yard said it was treating the two incidents as linked.

The stabbings come after an 18-year-old boy was killed in Southwark on Sunday after being chased by a man "wearing a grey or blue hoodie."
