Witnesses have described chaotic scenes as up to 80 teenagers spilled in the street during a night of violence that saw one boy knifed to death and two others stabbed.
Emergency services descended on Hertfield Road in Enfield on Saturday evening after reports of a mass brawl. An 18-year-old boy was found by lying in the street with stab wounds by police at around 10.30pm. He died in hospital around an hour later from his injuries. Two other teenage boys, aged 19 and 17, were found nearby with knife wounds in Palmers Lane. They were taken to hospital for treatment but their condition was not being treated as life-threatening.
Resident Faron Paul said he confronted some of the teenagers, demanding to know why they had been allowed out so late. One teen told him: “I was in a rave and then youths kicked off, innit.”
