The officer was stabbed last Tuesday night in an alley off the main Bow Road, next to the Bow Bells pub, while on an operation relating to street gangs in an area known for drug dealing.

Detectives from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command began a hunt for four people seen running from the area after the incident, Scotland Yard later confirmed.

The officer was taken to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel where he remains with non life-threatening injuries.

Janine Morris, 24, from Rainhill Way in Bromley-by-Bow, close to the scene of the stabbing, appeared in custody at Thames Magistrates’ Court this-morning with 20-year-old Andrew Beadie, from Basildon.

Both have been remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on January 4, each charged with attempted murder and causing affray. Morris is also charged with assisting an offender.

A 17-year-old youth arrested “on suspicion of attempted murder” on the night of the incident remains on bail until late January, pending further police investigations.
