Three men have died in a stabbing in east London.
Police were called at about 19:40 GMT on Sunday to reports of a disturbance in Elmstead Road in Seven Kings, Ilford.
Three men in their 20s or 30s were found by emergency services with apparent stab wounds, the Met Police have said. The three men were pronounced dead at the scene. And no arrests have been made yet, the Met added.
Police are in the process of formally identifying the victims and informing the next of kin.
Ch Supt Steve Clayman said: “While inquiries into this tragic incident are at an early stage, this is likely to be a triple homicide investigation.”
Sadiq Khan tweeted: “My thoughts are with their families and the local community at this dreadful time.”
Extra police enforcement powers have been authorised for the whole of Redbridge borough until 8am tomorrow.
Please contact the police on 101 or contact @CrimestoppersUK anonymously if you have any information.
