A person has been taken to hospital after a stabbing in Plumstead.

Emergency services were called to Barnfield Road at around 10am on Friday, July 5.

Paramedics were at the scene in three minutes and treated a patient at the scene.

They were then taken to hospital.

Photos show blood splattered across stairs inside of the building and the door handle to enter the building – Acworth House.

A resident told the News Shopper that six hours after the police cordon was removed and forensics had left the scene, the blood was still there and had not been cleaned.

The resident added that many people who live in Acworth House have young children, making them even more worried about the blood being left there.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “We were called at 10.03am on Friday 5 July to reports of a stabbing on Barnfield Road, SE18.

“We sent resources to the scene, including an ambulance crew, a paramedic in a fast response car and an incident response officer.

“Our first crews arrived on scene in approximately three minutes.

“We treated a patient at the scene and took them to a major trauma centre.”

A spokesperson for Greenwich Council said: “The safety of our residents is of the utmost importance and we work closely with the police to tackle and support the victims of crime across the borough. 

“We understand that witnessing a crime scene may cause distress, especially to young children.

“Our teams work hard, often under incredibly difficult circumstances, to clean up as quickly and thoroughly as possible following upsetting incidents such as this. 

“On this occasion, there was a delay in locating blood on the building's second floor but this has now been cleared and we apologise for any distress caused to residents.”
