Police have been given extra stop and search powers in Bromley after a teenager was stabbed.

A Section 60 Order has been implemented across Bromley, Croydon and parts of Lambeth after a teenager was stabbed in Norbury.

Officers were called to St Oswald's Road yesterday (May 19) at 3.20pm.

A 19-year-old man was taken to hospital but his condition has now been classed as non life-threatening.

A Section 60 allows a police officer to stop and search a person without suspicion.

A spokesman for Croydon MPS said: "Due to the increased risk of possible further serious injury and disorder, a Section 60 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 area has been declared by the police.

"Extra police resources have arrived on the two boroughs and are conducting patrols in the area."

A Section 60 order means police have extra powers to stop and search any person or vehicle without need of reasonable suspicion.

This is the second time such an order has been in place in Croydon since Thursday, May 16.

Anyone who witnessed this incident or has information is asked to contact Croydon CID by dialling 101 and quoting CAD4577/19MAY, tweet @MetCC or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
