A man was stabbed in the leg when a gang of robbers stormed a bus in Camden Town on Monday night.

The mob boarded the notorious number 29 bus in Camden Town at around 10.30pm and robbed two men aged 19 and 27.

The 27-year-old was left needing hospital treatment after being stabbed in the leg.

Police will be increasing their numbers on the bendy bus route , which has been plagued by trouble in the past.

PC Chris Ives from Camden's Robbery Unit said: "There were several other passengers on the bus at the time of the incident who may be able to assist with our enquiries. Anyone with information is asked to call Camden Police."

Eleven men have so far been arrested in connection with Monday's incident.

The 27-year-old has since been released from hospital.
