A reader who called the Enfield Independent said there had been police and ambulance sirens in Kendal Avenue last night and there were still police vehicles in the area.

They said it was "normally a quiet area" and they were sad to see apparent knife crime in the neighbourhood.

Detective Chief Superintendent Caroline Haines, the senior officer responsible for the Met’s North Area BCU, said: “I thank local people for their patience as police have worked through the night. They will continue to see a police presence and ongoing activity in their neighbourhood in the coming days, and I encourage people in the community to speak with those officers if they have any information or concerns that they wish to share."
