One man has been found shot and another stabbed in a night of violence in Finsbury Park.

Police were called at about 9:45pm on last night, Monday July 8, to reports of gunshots heard on Seven Sisters Road.

Armed officers attended and found the first victim, a 30-year-old man, suffering from a stab wound.

He was taken by paramedics to an east London hospital where he remains in a stable condition; his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

A second man, believed to be aged in his late 20s, was found nearby, close to Blackstock Road, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was also taken by paramedics to an east London hospital. His condition is unknown at this point.

These incident happened yards away from the spot where a man died last Wednesday evening in a motorbike accident.
