Londoners will have to exchange knives for sporks.

Via Daily Mail:

Six teenagers have been stabbed tonight in four separate attacks across London amid a surge in violent crime.

The attacks – which police believe are not linked – come just hours after a man was knifed down this afternoon in Wandsworth.

The first incident this evening happened in Mile End, east London, just after 6pm, when three teenagers hospitalised with two seriously injured after a knife attack took place in front of horrified witnesses.

One youth has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and another charged with GBH with intent.

Less than an hour later, a teenage boy was stabbed near East India Dock, two miles away.

By 7pm, a fifth victim, described as a young teenage boy, was knifed outside HSBC bank on Ealing Broadway in West London.

Minutes later across the city in Newham, a 13-year-old boy was left seriously injured after a blade was plunged into him after he was reportedly set upon by a gang of youths.

Police say three teenage boys have been arrested on suspicion of GBH with intent.

London is currently facing its highest violent crime levels since 2010, with Scotland Yard investigating 55 murders since January.

Escalating violence has been worst in London, with 13 people killed within two weeks last month.
