A MAN has been arrested following a stabbing this afternoon around 300m from the spot where Drummer Lee Rigby was murdered.

Emergency services were called to Wellington Street at 3.53pm today and found a man suffering from stab wounds to his chest and arm.

The stabbing victim’s injuries are not life threatening and he has been taken to a south London hospital for treatment.

Detectives have now confirmed a man has been arrested in connection with the assault and he is in custody at a south London police station.

It is thought there is no link to Drummer Rigby’s murder nor with the English Defence League activity in the area.
