Three men have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a 22-year-old was stabbed near a school in Chadwell Heath.

A Met Police spokesman said an 18-year-old and two 20-year-olds remained in custody at an east London police station today.

He said a 22-year-old man was still critical but stable following the incident in Gresham Drive just before 4pm on Wednesday.

Officers were forced to close the road for several hours, with the man taken to hospital by ambulance.
