Teenager stabbed to death in broad daylight in London


A 16-year-old boy was stabbed to death at a park in southeast London on Wednesday. The boy was found with stab wounds by police officers who had rushed to the crime scene upon receiving reports of a fight in progress.

The victim was pronounced dead at the crime scene in Lewisham. The paramedics tried their best to save the boy, but the wounds were so fatal that he could not be saved. The incident reportedly took place in Fordham Park near Deptford Green School and the Moonshot Centre.

“It’s really sad. It’s a really lovely community around here. It’s shaken people up. Also really concerned for the families involved. It’s a real family community,” an eyewitness told MyLondon.

The police have launched an investigation into the matter, however, no arrests have been made yet. Section-60 has been imposed in the borough of Lewisham, giving the police greater stop and search powers.
