Three teenage boys were rushed to hospital last night after a triple stabbing in east London.

Police rushed to South Street in Romford shortly after 5.30pm on Monday evening, where they found three teenagers - aged 15, 16 and 17 - with stab wounds.

They were rushed to hospital, where their injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.

It is believed the stabbings came after a fight inside a chicken shop on the same street in Romford.

Footage shared online shows a brawl taking place in a Popeyes shop, with punches and chairs flying as the fight spilled onto the street.
