Police attend ‘critical incident’ amid reports of stabbing near Hainault Tube station

A 14-year-old boy has died and four others taken to hospital after members of the public and police officers were attacked in Hainault by a man wielding a sword in Hainault, northeast London.

Officers were called shortly before 7am to reports of a vehicle being driven into a house in the Thurlow Gardens area, with reports that people had been stabbed.

Four people remain in hospital with injuries believed not to be life-threatening. Both police officers have “significant injuries” and will require surgery, the Metropolitan Police said.

A 36-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and police said they were not looking for further suspects. The incident did not appear to be terror-related, nor is there believed to be an ongoing threat to the wider community, police said.

The suspect is also in hospital after sustaining injuries when his van collided with a house in Hainault, meaning police have so far been unable to question him.

One man spoke of how the suspect was involved in a stand-off with police in an alleyway in the Thurlow Gardens area, before hearing a “huge commotion” and a woman screaming.

Dramatic footage shows suspect being tasered following Hainault stabbings

A sword-wielding man who has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a 14-year-old boy can be seen being cornered and tasered by police officers in dramatic footage.

The video, obtained by the PA news agency, shows how officers shout at the suspect, saying “Don’t move, don’t f****** move”, after he is brought to the ground by three separate Taser discharges.

Wearing a yellow hooded top, the suspect can be seen climbing over a fence on to a residential driveway to the backdrop of police sirens in Hainault, east London.
