Meanwhile, several police cars and ambulances came down Iverson Road, Kilburn, where police confirmed that two men in their twenties had been stabbed.

The two incidents took place at less than an hour intervals at. 16.10 at Seven Kings and around kl. 17.00 in Kilburn.

“Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended and found a man – no further details – were found with stab wounds,” police said of the Kilburn incident.

“Another man – no further details – with stab wounds was found nearby on Cavendish Road.

“Both men are believed to be in their twenties and have been rushed to hospital. We are awaiting an update on both men’s condition.”

A short video taken from the Iverson Road scene shows several police cars setting up a perimeter on the road while ambulances can also be seen.

In the clip, the eyewitness describes the scene as something from a ‘war zone’.
