Armed police officers were called to St. Stephen's Road in Tower Hamlets around 11 a.m, the Metropolitan Police said, adding that three people were found suffering from stab wounds and were taken to hospital.

A man was detained near the health centre and was also taken to hospital due to an injury. The incident was not terror related, the police was cited as saying by the Telegraph.
