We are aware of inaccurate reports of a shooting at the Broadwater Farm Estate, N17 last night.

On Wednesday, 24 July officers were in attendance in the Broadwater Farm Estate area, N17, providing a low key presence at a pre-organised event.

At 23:20hrs officers came across a man, aged in his 20s, suffering a stab injury. He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening or life-changing injuries.

At about 23:50hrs, a bang was heard by an officer.

Officers conducted a thorough search of the area and no evidence was found to suggest the noise was a firearm discharge.

There were no reports of any injuries. No injured persons self-presented at hospital.
