EIGHT teenagers have been arrested after a 15-year-old schoolboy was stabbed in a street fight in East London.

The youths aged 16 to 19 have all been given police bail following the stabbing along Bethnal Green’s Roman Road last week, police confirmed today (Wednesday).

They were being questioned about the boy who was knifed during clashes on May 26, when police answered a 999 call. The boy was found bleeding in Palmer’s Road just off Roman Road, alongside the Regent’s Canal, and was taken to hospital in a critical condition. He has since been released from hospital.

Police today were appealing for witnesses to contact 020-7275 4542, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555111.
