SIX teens were stabbed in just over 90 minutes last night as London reels in the rising wave of violence.
A 13-year-old has been left fighting for his life following the knifing spree that came hours after a man was attacked earlier in the day.
A man in his 20s was stabbed in Walthamstow around lunchtime, before a 15-year-old was knifed on East India Dock Road at 5.30pm and three men - two just 15 years old - were attacked in Grove Road, Mile End just over half an hour later.
At 6.57pm a 13-year-old boy was rushed to hospital in a critical condition after being stabbed in Newham, before a man in his late teens was attacked less than ten minutes later in Ealing Broadway - taking the grim total of victims to seven.
One suspect has been charged with attempted murder after the trio attacked in Mile End were knifed yesterday afternoon.
And three people were taken into custody following the stabbing in Newham.
