A 26-year-old man is fighting for life after a knife brawl in north London amid 24 hours of violence on the streets of the capital.

Police rushed to Stamford Hill just after 5pm today to reports of a fight in the street close to the junction with Clapton Common.

There were no victims at the scene but three men took themselves to hospital just hours later suffering stab wounds, Scotland Yard said.

One man is said to be in a critical condition while two others, aged 19 and 20, were treated for less serious injuries.

Detectives have urged any witnesses to the fight to come forward.

The violence comes less than 24 hours after a 14-year-old boy was left fighting for life after being shot in the head in east London.

The schoolboy was blasted with a shotgun in east London and is said to be critically ill in hospital today while his 17-year-old friend was seriously injured.

The shooting follows a series of tit-for-tat stabbings and shootings in Newham and police immediately ordered sweeping stop and search powers to come into force amid fears of a retaliation.

In separate incidents two men were stabbed to death in street attacks in Camden and Hounslow while three others suffered knife wounds in a clash in Southall.

The carnage began at 11.45am on Monday when a 20-year-old man was stabbed in the neck near Euston station.

The man collapsed and died at the scene at the entrance of the Ampthill Estate in Camden with witnesses saying he had been chased by attackers on bikes.

In a second stabbing incident at 3.30pm a 29-year-old man died after he was knifed in the chest in a “fight taking place between two groups” in Hounslow. 

Emergency services were called to clashes in Rosebery Road, less around 500 metres from Twickenham rugby stadium, and found the victim stabbed in the street. He also died at the scene.

Later, just after 11pm, three men in their 20s were injured with knives after a disturbance in Comer Crescent, Southall.
