Bow stabbing: Teenager dead and another critical after 'disturbance' – BBC

A teenager has been stabbed to death and another seriously wounded during a violent disturbance in east London.
The Met Police was called to a fight "involving a large number of people" at Lichfield Road in Bow shortly after midnight.
Two males were taken to hospital with knife wounds but one, who is believed to be aged 17, was pronounced dead at 01:45 BST, the force said.
The second, thought to be 18 years old, remains in a critical condition.
The Met said an investigation was under way but no arrests had been made.
Det Ch Insp Mark Rogers said: "This is a highly worrying incident that has left one young man dead and another fighting for his life in hospital
"I am aware of reports saying that about a hundred people, armed with weapons were involved.
"While I would stress that our investigation is in its very early stages, this information does not appear to be wholly accurate.
"We know a significant number of people were caught up in this incident but not necessarily directly involved or armed with weapons."
The force has appealed for anyone with information to contact officers.
