The two 16-year olds hurt in the attack, one hit by a bullet in the back the other in the leg. They were, taken to East London hospital where they, were treated for their injuries; they are in a stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

There has been no arrest as yet, following the incident, the police are asking for any witness to come forward.

I cannot understand what motivates individuals to hurt or kill another human being when it is not in defence of their life. It is East London, for crying out loud, not the OK Carol.

We do not need these kinds of gun violence on the streets of the Capital. Gun crimes are a plague to society, and we should do everything in our powers to assist the security service taking guns and the people who use them off our streets and out of the community.
