Last week police began investigating after five people were stabbed at random in the same London borough.

Police linked attacks on four people in the Edmonton area of Enfield last weekend, that left two critically hurt and one with potentially life-changing injuries.

Police announced a single male suspect who may have mental health issues was acting alone in the attacks, and there was nothing to suggest they were terror-related.
