This year, there have been an astonishing 111 homicides so far.

Today’s tragedy comes only a day after Jai Sewell, 15, was stabbed to death in Bellingham, south east London.

Charity director Robin Pritchard, 47, said he moved through a crowd and saw the victim lying in a pool of blood while someone provided CPR.

He told Press Association: “I saw the guy on the floor, a pool of blood like he’d been stabbed in the stomach, his clothes were soaked.

“It was strangely calm and quiet. I think everyone was in shock. Lots of kids there from the local college.

“All I really registered were grey tracksuit bottoms which were soaked with a pool of blood coming from his waist like he’d been stabbed in the stomach.”

Another witness, who did not want to be named, said he saw “a bunch of guys” shouting and appearing agitated, with one carrying a large knife.

He added that the area is usually noisy after students leave nearby Saint Francis Xavier College.

He said: “I had no idea it was different to any other time the students get a bit noisy, until I saw the knife as I was literally passing them.”
