DETECTIVES investigating the stabbing of three teenagers in East London later arrested five youths.
The suspects were held at an East London police station while investigations into Tuesday evening’s stabbing in Chingford continued, Scotland Yard said today.
Officers found the three victims—the youngest a schoolboy of 15—with knife wounds in the street when they answered a 999 call to Kings Road.

The three sought treatment at nearby Larkshall medical centre before ambulances were called. All three are now out of hospital.
Detectives today appealed for witnesses who may have seen the attackers making off towards Hatch Lane on Tuesday night, following the clash involving 12 youths.
They want anyone with information to contact Waltham Forest CID on 020-8345 2376, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555111.
The five youths who were arrested, aged 15 to 19, have since been given police bail.
