Fairford House stabbing in Kennington... they kept that quiet

Kennington Association news blog has a report from the South London Press about a stabbing in Kennington. I get a lot of hits for people searching for stabbings, (often old events), but I did wonder why I had so many hits for Kennington Lane. See the SLP news report for further info, but it transpires that a 22 year old man was stabbed eight times on 26th April 2009 in Kennington Lane, outside Fairford House. Tha man hasn't been named. Amazingly, he survived the attack (get well soon!), and two 17 year olds are in custody.

Does anybody know the whereabout of Fairford House on Kennington Lane (in SE11)? Google maps can't account for it, and I'm not sure whether it's a residential building or an office block.

I haven't seen this stabbing reported anywhere else... It would be very useful to have reports from Lambeth police force about crime in the area, but as far as I know, no such news is available. Please drop me an email if you work with/for Lambeth police force, and would be interested in making news public to local news outlets or bloggers, other than the SLP.

I think it is Fairford House, near Hurley Clinic

Fairford house is part of the cotton gardens estate on kennington lane, which includes Hurley house and Ebenezer house and the Hurley clinic is at the bottom of Ebenezer house (ground floor), It's 3 high rise buildings separated by a mezzanine landing, The incident you are referring too was not well publicized and I know the young man in question personally, The attack was a "post code" attack, basically he was in the wrong area at the wrong time. hope this helps.

I must add that he was stabbed 9 times and not 8 as mentioned, it's a miracle that he survived yet he is effected for life psychologically.
