A teenager has died after a stabbing in east London overnight as the capital continues to be gripped by a surge in knife-crime.Police, paramedics and London’s Air Ambulance were called to Chestnut Avenue, Forest Gate, at about 10.50pm where an 18-year-old man was pronounced dead 40 minutes later. No arrests have been made.Police are yet to declare it a murder but it is being treated as such, HuffPost has been told. Formal identification and a post-mortem examination are due to take place, the Met said.A cordon remains at the scene and police on Tuesday urged anyone with information on the incident to come forward.The death comes after two people died of stab wounds in separate domestic incidents in London on Sunday.The latest stabbing adds to almost 60 murder investigations launched by the Met so far this year and comes just over a week since Home Secretary Amber Rudd released her serious violence strategy. The stabbing also comes after 11 homicides involving teenagers were launched in London since January.  These include the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Tanesha Melbourne-Blake in Tottenham earlier this month, along with the death, minutes later, of 16-year-old Amaan Shakoor in Walthamstow.
