VIDEO: Two more youths stabbed overnight as London knife crime surges

In the latest spate of violence in London, two teenagers were stabbed at a shopping centre in Croydon on Friday evening.

Police were called at 5.15pm on Friday April 6, to a male aged in his late teens or early 20s suffering stab injuries at the Whitgift Shopping Centre in Croydon.

Officers, London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance all attended the location. A 16-year-old male, also suffering stab injuries, was found at the location. Both were taken to hospital.

The incident follows a sharp rise in knife crime within the UK capital, which recently saw more murders committed in the city within February and March than there were in New York.
