A THIRTEEN-YEAR-OLD boy is fighting for life after being stabbed multiple times near a school on the Isle of Dogs in East London.

Cops raced to the scene near George Green School on Parsonage Street just after 8.50am this morning following reports of a stabbing.

The boy was taken to a hospital in East London, and there has been no update on his condition.

There have been no arrests yet and cops are currently liaising with staff at George Green School, according to the Met Police.

A spokesperson for the school this afternoon confirmed to MyLondon that the victim was a student.

Meanwhile, a schoolbag was also seen by witnesses on the pavement – with forensic officers closely examining the item this morning.

An air ambulance landed at nearby Millwall Park supporting ambulance services sent by road.

It comes after a spate of stabbings in London this year.

Junior Jah, 18, was found knifed to death near his home in Canning Town, East London on Monday afternoon. There is no suggestion that it is linked to today's incident.

Junior was the 12th teenager stabbed to death in London in 2021 – just five less than there were in the whole of 2020.

So far this year there has been 32 murder investigations launched in London, and of those, 25 have been stabbings.

Junior was attacked just minutes away from where Fares Maatou, 14, was stabbed in the head outside a pizza restaurant while defending his friend last week.

Referencing today's incident, a Met Police spokesperson said: "Police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 8.50am on Thursday, April 29 to reports of a stabbing on Parsonage Street, E14.

"Officers and London’s Air Ambulance attended. A 13-year-old boy was found suffering from stab injuries.

"At this early stage, there have been no arrests.

"A crime scene remains in place.
