A MAN was knifed to death and a teen has been left fighting for life after a double stabbing outside a Tesco Express in North London this evening.

Met Police said there was no information to suggest that all of Friday night's South London incidents, which are still being investigated, were linked.

The first of last night's attacks happened at 6.56pm on Chapman Road which left one injured.

Around 20 minutes later, four men in their 20s attended a local hospital – believed to be Croydon University Hospital – with "stab and slash" wounds, police said.

At 8.10pm, police were called to the scene of an attack on Wisbeach Road where one man died at the scene after paramedics desperately tried to save him.

Two others at the scene had stab wounds – although only one was taken to hospital.

Less than an hour later, at 8.51pm, two more males presented themselves to a local hospital with stab wounds.

The final attack at 9.12pm left one man injured on Dingwall Road. Police arrested one man on suspicion of GBH and also cuffed the wounded male as well.
