An air ambulance went to the scene, where the boy was treated by medics before being taken to hospital by road.

His parents have been told, and he is critically ill in an east London hospital, Scotland Yard said.

Officers believe the boy was involved in an altercation shortly before he was stabbed,  possibly by a suspect riding a bicycle.

Police officers and detectives were behind a cordon blocking part of Willan Road on Friday evening.

Nearby alleyways were also cordoned off and a police dog and handler could be seen looking for clues.
