A MAN is fighting for his life after a double stabbing in Upper Street.

Police were called at 12.40am this morning, with London’s air ambulance also racing to the scene.

A man, believed to be 28, was taken to hospital with life-changing injuries.

Paramedics also treated a 17-year-old boy for stab wounds, but his injuries are not thought to be serious.

Police taped off a large section of Upper Street from Highbury Corner to Islington Green but it has now reopened, though an area near the Town Hall is still a crime scene, according to Islington MPS.

A spokesman for the Met police said: “Police were called by London Ambulance Service at around 12.40am on Saturday, 25 February, to reports of a stabbing on Upper Street.

“Shortly after this police were alerted to a second stabbing victim also on Upper Street.

“There have been no arrests at this time and an investigation into the incidents is ongoing.”
