A teenage boy was stabbed repeatedly in a “mass brawl” involving machetes on the Nightingale Estate green in Hackney according to a residents’ group.

The 16-year-old boy suffered multiple knife wounds and was hurried to hospital at around 4pm on Tuesday after police and paramedics were called to the scene.

Scotland Yard said the boy was treated at a local surgery before being taken to a central London hospital.

His condition is not believed to be life-changing or life-threatening.

An 18-year old man involved in the incident was also treated for leg injuries.

There have not yet been any arrests.

The Nightingale Estate community group reported on Twitter: “Mass brawl on the green of #nightingaleestate. Group of young lads with machetes attacking each other.

“One, or more, likely stabbed and have run for cover in Nightingale NHS Practice. Being treated. That’s the 3rd stabbing on this Estate in a year.”


In a second tweet they said: “Never seen a horse response unit to a #stabbing on an Estate before. One for the history of #nightingaleestate. And here come the choppers.”
