Camden Council and the police are set to hold a public meeting in the wake of a recent spate of knife crime in West Hampstead.
Two 17-year-olds were stabbed in a matter of days at the end of October and early November. On October 29, a teen was stabbed in the arm in Iverson Way. Nobody has been arrested or charged.
On November 6, another 17-year-old was found with multiple stab injuries in Lithos Road. He was in critical condition, and was in hospital for more than a week.
A 16-year-old will go on trial at Blackfriars Crown Court in April, after he pleaded not guilty to grevious bodily harm.
The meeting will take place on December 5, in the Sherriff Centre, in Sherriff Road. It will start at 6.30pm
