3 people injured in stabbing incident in central London, police & ambulances on scene (VIDEO)
Three people have been injured in a reported knife attack in downtown London that sparked a massive police response. Footage from the scene shows ambulance crews and police cars at the site of the incident.

The incident took place on Edgware Road, just a half-hour after the city, which is under a strict lockdown, ushered in the new year. Speaking to the Daily Star, a spokesperson for the ambulance service said two men had been taken to “a major trauma centre” and one female victim transported to hospital as a result of the attack.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed that a stabbing had taken place, cordoned off the crime scene, and closed down the street to traffic until 6am. It also enforced a Section 60 order, which allows police to carry out “stop and search” efforts in a designated area.

There have been unconfirmed reports in the local media that a woman was arrested in connection with the incident.
