The victim – believed to be an 18-year-old man – was pronounced dead at the scene at 11.30pm. Officers are now in the process of informing the next of kin.

The ‘crime scene’ has now been sealed off by the police, however there has been no arrests at this early stage.

The victim is yet to be formally identified and a post-mortem will take place ‘in due course’.

A witness posted on Twitter that cops were stopping pedestrians and claimed an officer told him “there is blood all over the road”.

In a seemingly unlinked incident, cops were called to Head Street in Limehouse, Tower Hamlets, at 3.18pm today and found a 17-year-old male suffering from multiple wounds.

The victim was taken to a nearby east London hospital for treatment. His condition is not thought to be life threatening. Another teen was treated for head injuries.

Officers say no arrests have been made in connection with the attack and enquiries are ongoing. A police cordon remains around the scene of the bloody attack.

The incident happened very close to St John Cass secondary school on Stepney Way.

An London Ambulance Service spokesman added: “We were called to Head Street to reports of a stabbing.

“We sent two ambulances, an advanced paramedic and an incident response officer.

“We took a teenage boy to a major trauma centre as a priority. A second teenager was treated at the scene for a head injury.”

Earlier today we reported how a man was stabbed to death in the first of two knife killings in London as more knife violence rocked the capital.

Police were scrambled to Colindale, North London just before 6pm yesterday and found the man, named locally as Raul Nicolaie, suffering stab wounds.He was rushed to hospital but sadly couldn’t be saved.

A woman in her 20s has been arrested and police say they are believed to be known to each other.

His death came just half-an-hour before a woman in her 30s was stabbed to death in Brixton, South West London, just after 6.30pm.

A man in his 20s has been arrested over the death and remains in custody.

Any witnesses, or anyone with information that may assist the Forest Gate investigation, are urged to call officers via 101 quoting CAD 8332/apr16
