No murders were reported across London over New Year, as the bloodiest year in a decade in the capital ended on a relatively quiet note.

Met Police believe there were no killings across London on the busy party night, as hundreds of thousands of revelers took to the streets.

Police officers said that a stabbing had taken place at a house party in southeast London on New Year's Eve, but none of the three victims are believed to be in a life-threatening condition.

The Lambeth branch of the Metropolitan Police tweeted: "We arrested three people after three males - two 17-year-olds and an 18-year-old - were stabbed just after midnight in Casewick Road, West Norwood.

"There were reports of a fight at a house party. Nobody is in a life threatening condition. Those arrested remain in custody."

An officer confirmed that no fatalities had been recorded across the city, as Londoners said goodbye to 2019.

New Year's Eve celebrations in the capital are often accompanied by violence.

Last year bouncer Tudor Siminov was stabbed to death while working at a private function in central London on New Year's Eve, ushering in one of the most violent years in the city's modern history.

And, in the early hours of 2018, three young men and a boy were stabbed to death in a spate of unrelated attacks across London over New Year.

Scotland Yard recorded 149 homicides in 2019 up to 30 December according to figures, a 10-year high.
