Murder investigation in Hackney, 6th fatal stabbing in 10 days

A murder investigation is underway after a man was stabbed to death in Hackney – it’s at least the 6th fatal stabbing in London in the last 10 days.

The victim, in his 30s, was found on Shakespeare Walk, Stoke Newington, on Monday evening at at 5.50pm.

On New Year’s Eve 4 people were stabbed to death around the capital.

A woman in her 40s was killed in a knife attack in Ilford on January 3rd.

Also, a shopkeeper in Mill Hill was allegedly beaten to death by a gang of teenagers for refusing to sell them cigarette papers yesterday.

And a teenager yesterday pleaded guilty to a string of acid attacks against moped drivers – he committed the spate of attacks in just 90 minutes in north and east London.

London is out of control. How can the pen pushers slashing the Met’s funding possibly sleep at night in the knowledge that people are dying as a result of their cutbacks?
