A 15-year-old boy was critically injured in a stabbing in Wornington Road on Sunday.

He remains in hospital and a 14-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.

A 20-year-old man suffered non-life threatening injuries in a stabbing in Portobello Road on Sunday, while two boys aged 15 and 16 were stabbed in Ladbroke Grove on the same day.

No arrests have been made in connection with either attack.

Separately, police say a man spoke to police at Kensal Rise station and told them he had been stabbed, resulting in a cut to the head.

But he did not give them any more details and left the scene.
