A 16-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a police officer was stabbed in the stomach in east London.

Two officers attended a car park near Bunsen House, Bow, at 23:30 GMT on Sunday after receiving reports of anti-social behaviour.

A knife was recovered and the suspect was taken to an east London police station for questioning.

The officer is in a "serious but stable condition", the Met Police said.

Reports of anti-social behaviour were received by police, including a moped being ridden near to flats.

Nobody else was arrested.

Scotland Yard said there is not believed to be any link to extremism or terrorism.
