A teenage boy was stabbed to death during a broad daylight attack in London today.
Police were called around midday after the 17-year-old was knifed just minutes away from Tottenham Hotspur's stadium.
Despite the efforts of officers and paramedics, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Two males have been arrested in connection with the stabbing and both have been taken into police custody.
The boy's family is being informed, with a post-mortem examination to take place soon, said the Metropolitan Police.
It is the seventh stabbing to have occurred in the capital in 24 hours, reports The Express.
