Hainault stabbing: Police at scene of ‘critical incident’ after several people injured

Emergency services are currently at the scene of a “critical incident” in Hainault after several people were stabbed in an attack on Tuesday (30 April).

A 36-year-old man has been arrested and emergency services are at the scene in Hainault, where the Tube station and nearby roads are closed, the Metropolitan Police said.

Officers were called shortly before 7am to reports of a vehicle being driven into a house in the Thurlow Gardens area, with reports that people had been stabbed. Scotland Yard believes the suspect went on to attack other members of the public and two police officers.
