After Sunday’s stabbing of a young man in Crouch End, Hornsey and Wood Green MP Catherine West has written an open letter calling on the two remaining candidates to be Prime Minister to take action to reduce knife crime.
The MP has called for constituents to add their signatures to her letter, which she will send on the new PM's first day in office.
She said: "This month has seen yet more violent crime on our streets, with the shocking stabbing of a teenager in Crouch End.
"It's desperately sad to see this cycle of violence continue with so little action from the Government."
A teenager was stabbed in the abdomen after an altercation in Middle Lane, Crouch End shortly after 9pm.
