Police said two males have been arrested in connection with the incident. The first - who had also suffered a head injury - was arrested on suspicion of GBH and the second on suspicion of affray.

Police said: “Full enquiries into the circumstances continue,” adding: “Specialist Crime detectives have been informed.”

A Section 60 Order, which gives police greater stop and search powers, was authorised for the whole of Wandsworth following the incident.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan called the stabbing “appalling and tragic” and said he was in close contact with police over the incident.
