Traffic is backed up in Goodmayes after a teenager was stabbed in a street fight early this morning.

Police have cordoned off Longbridge Road, Barking, after finding a 19-year-old man with two stab wounds at around 2.25am on Tuesday, September 25.

A section of the street has been closed between Fanshawe Avenue and South Park Drive which is causing severe delays between Goodmayes and the centre of Barking.

Several bus services have also been diverted.

The wounded teenager was taken to an east London hospital this morning with non-life threatening injuries.

A Met Police spokesman confirmed that two other victims were discovered with minor injuries nearby and they are “ not believed to have been stabbed”.

No arrests have been made and police officers are investigating the incident.
