A man has been rushed to hospital after being stabbed near the world famous Kew Gardens.


Police were scrambled to Royal Parade in Kew, south-west London, just before 8am on Sunday following reports of a knife attack.

The victim, who is in his 50s, was taken to hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

A cordon is in place at the scene just five minutes’ walk from the gates of the botanical gardens.

No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing, a Met Police spokesman said.

It comes after two teenagers were stabbed and another was attacked at a house in Kensington, west London, at about 7pm on Saturday.

All three were rushed to hospital although none of their injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

Police said two other men, aged 18 and 19, and a woman aged in her late teens or early 20s were arrested in connection with the incident in Wilsham Street.

Following the incident, a Section 60 order was put in place in the surrounding area, allowing senior police officers to authorise the stop and search of pedestrians and vehicles.
