A stabbing victim remains in a serious condition in hospital a month after being attacked in Dagenham.

The 16-year-old boy was knifed in Broad Street in the early hours of July 20.

Three men were arrested and bailed pending further inquiries.

A Met police spokesman said today: “A 16-year-old boy was taken to an east London hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition - his condition is not believed life threatening.”

A 22-year-old was bailed to mid-August, a 19-year-old to early September and an 18-year-old to mid-September.
