A teenager knifed near a church in a quiet residential street has been discharged from hospital.

The 19 year-old was stabbed in Castle Avenue, Highams Park, on July 9 at around 10:40pm.

It was initially thought he had been stabbed outside the Food and Wine off-licence in The Avenue as that is where police and emergency services were called to. 

The victim collapsed outside the off-licence and was helped into a car and taken to hospital by two friends where he remained in a critical condition for 24 hours.

Police confirmed today the victim was discharged from hospital on Monday.

The incident is being investigated by Trident, a Metropolitan Police gang unit, and no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police non-emergency line on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Oh what a surprise, incident happened once but hey ho it must be false statistics, not that you made yourself look like a fool by stating all over the other article how 'Highams park' had the worse crime in the borough only to be corrected by the official statistics that state that it is third lowest in the borough and has been for SEVERAL years. Oh wait a minute, they must be just making up highams park statistics and leaving all the other parts of the borough is that right? It seems very sad that you are soooo envious of the people living in Highams Park that you constantly rant like this.

I do not believe any statistics that the police have anything to do with. They have publicly admitted massaging figures to improve the perception of their performance.

I see for myself what the area is like in the evening with all the gangs loitering. I do not feel safe to venture beyond the confines of Tesco at night there.

House prices are affected by the crime in the area which is why the Walthamstow Village is almost twice the price of HP. HP has always been the poor relation to Walthamstow and North Chingford. Many in HP wander up to the affluent Woodford a stone throw away as it has a better feel shopping wise.

Lol oh you are so funny, look at actual house prices and you'll see that isn't true, I don't know anyone in Highams park who would move to Chingford or walthamstow as for feeling scared to walk around at night you must be very fragile and timid as I'm a woman who goes out on her own for a walk with my one year old every night around 10pm to settle him and have never felt worried or intimidated and certainly brave enough to ventre past tescos!!! The fact that you are too scared to go out does however explain how you have enough time to troll websites adding childish comments.

Your child should be in bed at 10pm not wandering around the streets with you.

Give children structure, should be in bed by 6pm the latest at that age.

How bizarre!

I've got a masters at distinction level in child development and know exactly what a child does and does not need however I doubt you've managed to convince anyone to reproduce with you but thanks for your advice I'll keep it in mind. A child of one and a half requires 10-15 hours sleep often broken into an 8 -10 hour block and 1 or 2 naps My child has two naps of 2 hours which i am currently reducing to one and a 10 hour block from 10pm to 8am absolutely none of buisness and yet again chatting about things that you know absolutly nothing about! Pathetic!!!
