Just the latest example of extreme violence on the streets of London.
Police say 2 16-year-old boys have been seriously injured after a shooting in an East London takeaway.
Shots were fired on Terrace Road, Paistow, at around 8.30pm last night – one boy was hit in the back, the other in the leg. The air ambulance took them to hospital.

Anyone who witnessed this incident but has not yet come forward is asked to call the Trident incident room on 0208 201 2713 or dial 101.
This is just the latest instance of extreme violence in London, and all too often it involves young teenagers. Yet this government seems intent on stripping the police of the resources it needs to take guns and hardened criminals off the streets. Crazy.
