Responding to news of another horrific stabbing in London, Gerard Batten MEP, UKIPs leader lamented on Twitter how some of our inner cities are becoming “like third world war zones”:
The second stabbing outside Ilford station in a month. Previous one fatal, this one not known yet. It might have something to do with the bands of migrant youth who congregate outside. Parts of our inner cities are turning into third world war-zones. pic.twitter.com/YIDbq3FGQh

The man, who was knifed on Cranbrook Road outside Ilford Station, is in his 20s and became the second victim of a attack outside the station after another man was stabbed to death in the same place in February this year.
Met Police said:
“We were called at 3.29pm today to reports of a stabbing.
“Officers attended with the London Ambulance Service.
“A man believed to be in 20s was stabbed. He has been taken to hospital.”
His condition is not believed to be life threatening.
