‘Knife crime is becoming all too common, we need a national strategy and more police resource now.’
Chief Superintendent Steve Clayman, Commander of the Met’s East Area BCU, said: ‘While enquiries into this tragic incident are at an early stage, this is likely to be a triple homicide investigation.
‘I must retain an open mind as to any motive as we are in the early stages of establishing the full circumstances.’
A Met Police spokesman added a Section 60 has been authorised for the whole of Redbridge borough until 0800hrs on Monday, 20 January.
This enables police to execute the powers without reasonable grounds of suspicion if they anticipate serious violence.
