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.

The Met police unit which probes gang attacks, the Trident Gang Crime Command, has been made aware of the stabbing.

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.
