Four teenagers have been arrested after a fight in Kingsland High Street, Dalston, London E8, on Saturday 5 June 2010 between 11pm and 11.30pm.
It ended when a 15-year-old with puncture wounds was taken to hospital by M-L, a privately owned ambulance service started by a Hackney entrepreneur to work with the National Health Service and other organisations. The boy was later discharged.
Police have denied a claim in an earlier report that the emergency services imposed a news blackout to prevent violent youths’ glorying in publicity. A press officer said: “I am not aware of Hackney police having ever imposed a news blackout of any kind.”
