A 15 year old child has been stabbed to death on Somerford Grove in #HackneyDowns, #N16.

A second boy, believed to be 16, was stabbed on Shacklewell Road. It is understood that his injuries are non life threatening.

The Met police have implemented a Section 60 Stop and Search power for the entire Borough in an attempt to prevent further serious violence.
