Two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent after a 17-year-old was found with “slash” wounds following an incident in Rainham on Friday.

The Metropolitan Police had previously confirmed officers were called to Lower Mardyke Avenue at 6.22pm on December 6 "to reports of a stabbing".

A police spokesman continued: "Officers attended along with paramedics from the London Ambulance Service.

"A 17-year-old male was found with slash wounds.

"He was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital; his injuries have been assessed as non life-threatening.
