An 18-year-old man is fighting for his life in hospital after being stabbed near a railway crossing.
Just before 2.30am on Tuesday, the teenager was injured in a fight with three other men near the crossing in Jubliee Avenue, Chingford, north-east London.
He remains with life threatening injuries after police gave him first aid at the scene before he was taken to hospital.
Detective Inspector Daniel Thompson said: “A young man is currently in hospital fighting for his life as a result of this attack.
“We are just a few hours into our investigation and we really need to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and witnessed any suspicious activity around the railway crossing on Jubilee Avenue.
“I am especially keen to hear from anyone who saw a silver car that was paying particular attention to this incident. We know that this car stayed in the area for a number of minutes before driving away in the direction of Broadway.”
