A man in his 50s was found stabbed in the heart after police were called to reports of a large disorder at a pub on Saturday.

Officers were called to the General Havelock pub in High Road, Ilford, at about 2.15am before London Ambulance Service (LAS) arrived and took the man to an east London hospital.

The man remains in hospital for treatment, but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening or life-changing.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested at the scene on suspicion of affray. He was later bailed to return to an east London police station in September.

Two other men were also arrested, each on suspicion of both violent disorder and grievous bodily harm. They have also both been bailed to return to an east London police station in September.
