Four people were stabbed inside a the North Pole restaurant in Greenwich when men wearing balaclavas reporting burst in on the last evening before Lockdown 2.0.

Two males and two females suffered knife wounds and were taken to hospital where their injuries are assessed as not-life threatening, Met Police said.

The incident took place at approximately 10pm on Wednesday, November 4, as revellers enjoyed their last drinks before the UK's nation-wide second lockdown came into effect in the morning.

Met said they were called at 10:20pm to reports of a stabbing at a public house on Greenwich High Road.

Officers and paramedics from the London Ambulance Service attended, and found four people at the scene suffering from stab wounds.

"They were taken to a south London hospital where their injuries were not life threatening.

"At this early stage there have been no arrests. Enquiries continue."

According to witnesses at the scene, police were "all over the place" from 10pm onwards.

One said he thought there was a "gang-related stabbing again at the North Pole" which was packed inside at the time.

"Three men ran inside with balaclavas and stabbed a man in the head. It was so scary."

The North Pole is a restaurant, bar and shisha lounge located on Greenwich High Road.
