Detectives investigating a stabbing in Woodford Green are appealing for information to identify two men.

Officers provided first aid and the man, aged in his 30s, was taken to an east London hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

Two men are reported to have left the scene on foot down Baddow Close. The first man is described as wearing a black Nike tracksuit and the second man was wearing a short-sleeved padded jacket and black tracksuit bottoms with a baseball cap.
