The two other men then presented themselves to the officers with stab injuries.

Officers provided first aid before the London Ambulance Service arrived.

All three men were taken to hospital by the London Ambulance Service. Their injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

A number of roads were closed while emergency services responded, including the top of Brick Lane.

Two men in their 20s were arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.
