At least five people have been stabbed in two separate incidents across the country as the UK welcomed in a new decade.
Three teenagers were knifed at a house party in West Norwood, south London following reports of a fight just after midnight.
Detectives say the two 17-year-olds and an 18-year-old, all male, are not in a life-threatening condition.
Three people have been arrested in connection with the incident.
And in Felixstowe, Suffolk, police were called to a property just two hours into the new year to reports of two women being stabbed.
Both were rushed to hospital, with one believed to have suffered serious.
A 34-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder, and a police cordon has been placed around the scene.
