A Newham main road has earned itself a bad reputation this week after a number of serious incidents occurred in a 48-hour window. 

Prince Regent Lane along the A112 saw a double stabbing, crashes, a hit and run and road closures. 

Double stabbing

Monday, October 16

Two teenagers were stabbed outside a secondary school in Newham.

The incident happened outside Newham Sixth Form College (NewVIc) with a large police presence on scene with the London Ambulance Service. 

The London Air Ambulance was dispatched in response to the knifing. 

A police cordon blocked traffic in both directions on the A112. 

A police spokesperson said: "Two teens were found at the scene - one suffering a stab wound to his upper arm, and the other with a cut to his face. 

"Neither injury is reported to be life threatening. A crime scene is in place and enquiries continue."

An ambulance spokesperson said the two boys were treated at the scene before being taken to hospital as a "priority".

NewVIc College later confirmed that two of their students were "involved" in the incident. Both teens have been confirmed by the college to be "recovering" and are "safe and well".

Footage later posted across multiple social media platforms showed youth in a group running with what appeared to be a large kitchen knife. 

The video panned to a group further down the road where a male appears to be lying on the floor.

Bystanders in the video looked visibly distressed and could be heard asking "what's going on?". Someone can be heard replying "Someone's been stabbed". 

A student reached shared an emotional statement, admitting they were "traumatised" after Monday's double stabbing (October 16). 

The 17-year-old said: "I was a bit traumatised because I’m now kind of scared to go to college now fearing for my life."

They claimed that the college "locked us all inside of college to maintain our safety", adding: "There was a whole crime scene, with everyone there, buses weren’t going. Overall, it was so scary."
