The London Ambulance Service has attended the scene.
One of the men who has been stabbed is listed as having “life-threatening” injuries. Victim 2 and 3's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Two males have been arrested on the scene in connection with the incident on suspicion of GBH and affray.
Full enquiries into the circumstances continue.
Road closures and an extensive crime scene are in place.
A Section 60 Order has been authorised for the whole of Wandsworth from 17:58hrs. Section 60 orders are related to stop and search. It’s different to other stop and search powers in that it requires the authority of a senior officer, and officers carrying out searches using this power are not required to have reasonable grounds to suspect that the person or vehicle is carrying weapons or other dangerous objects.
Anyone who has information, video or images that could assist police is asked to call 101, quoting reference CAD 5042/29 Oct.
The Met stress that while they know that calling to give information on knife crime is difficult, but your call could help save lives. When you get in touch with Crimestoppers, you have the power to speak up and stop crime, 100% anonymously. Find out more about at the Crimestoppers site.
