A 31-year-old man was stabbed in the neck and another suffered head injuries outside Barkingside Magistrates' Court this afternoon.
Police and ambulance crews were called to the court in Cranbrook Road, Barkingside at around 1.15pm to reports of a stabbing.
They found two men suffering injuries.
The 31-year-old was taken to an east London hospital with stab wounds to his neck.
The other man, whose age is not known, was taken to a separate hospital with head injuries.
Neither man’s injuries are thought to be life-threatening.
