Teenage girl dead and boy, 16, fighting for life after London shootings

Here in the states, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said the figures belay a truth about gun control - that criminals will still find a way to commit violent crime even if firearms are tough to get legally and even follow-up campaigns to get knives off the streets are inefficacious.

Scotland Yard said no arrests have been made and inquiries are continuing into the incident in Walthamstow, revealing that the homicide and major crime command are investigating alongside the Trident area crime command.

Of the 47 murders in London so far this year, 31 have been committed with knives. I just can't believe it - so young.

Police were called to the area at about 10pm to Markhouse road, E17 to reports of shots fired. "I'm sure it does rev people up", she said in an interview with The Times on Saturday.

The body count in London shows no sign of letting up: On Sunday, 20-year-old Devoy Stapleton was stabbed to death on his way home from a night out in Wandsworth, south London.

Acting Chief Superintendent Tania Coulson said: "Yesterday was a shocking night for all of us in Waltham Forest which left two young men suffering bad injuries; one of whom has now died".

'We are doing all we can to address community concerns.

The recent spate of violence has prompted scrutiny of a sharp reduction in stop-and-search activity, with use of the powers at the lowest level since current data records started 17 years ago.

Ant McPartlin WILL appear on Saturday Night Takeaway
ANT McPartlin was spotted days before his drink-drive crash filming a sketch with Declan Donnelly for Saturday Night Takeaway . An ITV spokesperson said: "It is utter nonsense to suggest that Ant and Dec are set to be replaced on I'm A Celebrity ".

"I would like to reassure members of this community that this strong police presence will continue".

Teenager Tanesha Melbourne was gunned down in Chalgrove Road, Tottenham, north London, shortly before 9.30pm on Monday, apparently a tragic casualty of a gang war.

Ms Coulson said Section 60, an intelligence led pre-authorised power to stop and search, has been in place since Monday and will be until at least the early hours of Wednesday. Another boy, aged 15, was taken to hospital with stab injuries. It was just the wrong place at the wrong time.

His death follows that of a 17-year-old girl, named locally as Tanesha Melbourne, who was killed in Tottenham. "She didn't deserve any of that".

She said: "I put her on her side and I was just rubbing her back, saying "everything's going to be OK".

"It's not good enough". My niece has gone now and my sister's in turmoil.

The shocking tally means the murder rate in London has risen by 40% in just three years; the stark opposite to New York's crime statistics which have fallen by almost 90% since Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's harsh crackdown in the 1990s.

London's murder rate has topped New York City's for the first time in the modern era, according to The Sunday Times, as an apparent surge in knife crime in the United Kingdom capital has coincided with crime dipping in the biggest USA city.
