Teenager is rushed to hospital after being ‘knifed in the neck’ outside east London college less than a mile from where girl scout Jodie Chesney was stabbed to death

A teenager has been rushed to hospital after reportedly being stabbed in a neck outside a college in east London. 

Havering College of Further and Higher Education in Harold Hill was cordoned off by police this lunchtime after the attack unfolded.

Police have cordoned off the campus and paramedics took the student to hospital. The victim’s condition is as yet unknown. 

A student was reportedly stabbed in the neck at Havering college in Harold Hill, Romford

A witness told the local paper, The Romford Recorder, that three men got out of BMW and chased the victim and another teenager down the street. 

A mother of a boy at the school told the paper:  ‘They said he was stabbed in the neck… It’s so so scary, it could have been my son, it could have been anyone’s son, I just hope he is okay.’

Conservative mayoral candidate Shaun Bailey tweeted: ‘Extremely concerned about this report of a stabbing at a college in my community of Harold Hill.

‘To the students of Havering College: please assist the police with their enquiries. We can’t be having this in our schools. This nonsense has to stop.’

The boy was reported brought into the college’s library while waiting for the ambulance to arrive. 

The college is less than a mile from the park where girl scout Jodie Chesney was fatally stabbed earlier this month in an attack which has shone a spotlight on Britain’s spiralling knife crime epidemic.

The college has around 400 students aged 14 to 18, offering GCSE and vocational courses.

Its website states: ‘Havering College is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all children and vulnerable adult learners and accepts the responsibility to help safeguard and protect them from harm.’
