In the latter people had been partying in the hot weather at a 100-strong rave when the shooting started. 

Meanwhile family of a man in his 50s were grieving their loss today after he was stabbed to death in the Star & Scorpion pub in Ealing.

Elsewhere disturbing CCTV footage in a bar in Havering, east London, showed the moment a knifeman walked behind an unsuspecting man and stabbed him repeatedly in the back.

The victim, 23, is in a serious but stable condition in hospital, but his assailant is still on the loose.

There is no suggestion any of the four violent crimes are connected to each other.

It comes just three days after police forces in England and Wales were revealed to have recorded the highest number of offences in 20 years, driven by a sharp rise in fraud, rape and violent attacks. 

A total of 6.3million crimes were recorded in the year to March 2022 ⁠— 4% higher than the previous all-time high of 6.1million in 2019/20.
