Jeffrey Leung, 40, of Malmesbury Road, Bow, will appear in custody at Thames Magistrates’ Court today charged with four counts of grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent, one count of attempted GBH with intent and one count of threatening behaviour with a bladed article.

The charges follow stabbings at two medical centres - in St Stephen’s Road and William Place - shortly after 11am on Wednesday.
