Three people have been killed in London just hours apart in separate attacks.

Police have arrested 14 people after a torrid 24 hours of violence in the city.

One teenager was killed in Wandsworth, in south west London, while a second was shot dead in Plumstead, on the other side of the city.

A third man was stabbed to death in Poplar in east London.

Police were also called to a street fight in Clapham, where three men were stabbed.

London mayor Sadiq Khan says he's sickened by the deaths and has condemned what he calls the "scourge of violence" in the city.
