Police carDetectives investigating last night’s stabbing in Brixton – which left the 18-year-old victim in a critical condition – are appealing for witnesses and information.

Police were called at around 6.15pm to reports of a man suffering stab wounds near where Rushcroft Road meets Windrush Square.

  1. So, someone is run down by a car, then stabbed in front of a Christmas crowd. If this had happened anywhere else it would be called terrorism, and there’d be a nationwide manhunt.
