Two men and a dog have been stabbed after a fight broke out at a funeral wake at a youth centre in Peckham, it has been reported.

Scotland Yard said officers were called to Commercial Way in Peckham shortly after 11pm on Tuesday following reports of a brawl between a group of men.

Paramedics found two men believed to be in their 20s with stab wounds, though one of them had a non-life-threatening injury and refused further medical treatment.

The other man was taken to hospital for treatment and his condition is unknown.

A police spokesman said: "One of the men's injuries was assessed as non-life-threatening and he refused further medical treatment," said the spokesman. "The other man has been taken to hospital for treatment. We await an update on his condition."

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of affray, Scotland Yard said.

The Daily Mirror reported the dog had been taken to an animal hospital, adding that the fight "broke out at a funeral wake near a pub".
