Police are appealing for witnesses with any information to contact them following a stabbing and shooting that took place after a party at an industrial site.

Officers attended the venue at around 5.30am on Sunday, July 23, after a group gathered, following a birthday party in Bridge Close, Romford.

Police spoke to a number of people at the scene and were informed that someone had been seen in possession of a firearm.

Officers then found a 29-year-old suffering from a stab wound.

He was taken by paramedics to an east London hospital in a critical condition and remains there in a stable condition - his injuries are not life threatening.

Two other men were also found with gunshot wounds and were taken to hospital for treatment before being discharged.

Two men, one aged 22 and the other 30, who were arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession of a firearm, were taken to an east London police station and have now been released under investigation.

Detectives from the Trident and Area Crime Command are investigating.

Det Con Conrad Trotman, who leads the investigation, said: “We would really appeal to any members of the public who have any information, however small they think it might be, to come forward to us to help our investigation.”

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 or contact via Twitter @MetCC.

To give information anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at
