A man is in a life-threatening condition after four men were injured in a stabbing in a pub in east London.
Officers were called to The Duke pub in Wood Street, Walthamstow, at around 8.16pm on Monday following reports of a stabbing.
Three men were found inside the pub with stab wounds, and a fourth was discovered with stab wounds in nearby Shernall Street.
The men, aged between 20 and 42, were taken to an east London hospital, where one remains in a life-threatening condition.
Officers from the local policing team in Waltham Forest are carrying out enquiries to establish what happened and are appealing for the public’s help.
Detective Inspector Grant Stevens, who is leading the investigation, said: “We are in the early stages of piecing together what happened last night and would like to hear from anyone who was inside the pub and witnessed the attack.
“Whilst news of this kind is concerning, I would like to reassure the community that there is nothing to suggest any wider risk to the public.
“Officers will remain in the area throughout the day and I would encourage anyone with concerns to speak with them.”
