Police officers searched a number of Tube stations in Havering this afternoon (Tuesday, September 25), after being alerted to a group of men armed with knives in Hornchurch.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed officers were called to Matlock Gardens, near Hornchurch Tube Station, at 12.25pm to reports of three men “armed with knives and wood” fighting in the street.

When officers arrived, no suspects could be found, but a search of local District Line stations was mounted.

No suspects were found, nor has anyone presented with any injuries in relation to the incident.

The British Transport Police were called in to assist in the search, but had minimal involvement.

There have been no arrests and enquiries continue.
