The BBC reported about an hour ago, and the Guardian a little bit later that a man (probably in late teens) was fatally stabbed in Guildford Road (SW8) at around 19:00 this evening. The reports say South West London, but most readers will be aware that that's only down the road in the area that falls between Vauxhall and Stockwell.
The Guardian report also notes that it will be the 21st teenage stabbing if the guy turns out to be under eighteen.
Another one. One too many. Somebody's somebody.
We can talk about knife crime as much as we like, but it doesn't seem to solve anything. Peace isn't easy to come by.
I have a friend who lives in Guildford Road. I hope she's ok.
