Police probing a stabbing where a teenager was set upon by four people have issued a CCTV appeal.

At around 2.45pm on Thursday October 1, a 16-year-old boy was stabbed in the arm in Richmond Road in Ilford.

The Met says four males jumped out of a blue Volkswagen Passat car, and one of them had a knife on him.

The suspects then fled in the Passat.

The London Ambulance Service and Met attended and the boy was taken to hospital for treatment before being discharged.

Now detectives have released CCTV images of two people officers believe can help with their enquiries.

Detective Constable Charlotte Joseph from the east area command unit said: "This was a brazen attack carried out in broad daylight in the middle of a busy street. Those involved are clearly dangerous individuals who need to be apprehended.

"I would ask anyone who recognises the two males in the images, or who has information that could identify the others involved to contact police immediately."
