101 Deaths Recorded As Rival Gangs Hit London Streets Armed With Machetes

This is the shocking moment two rival gangs wielding zombie knives and machetes clashed in a street fight in London.

The terrifying brawl, captured on dashcam footage, saw thugs armed with knives spill out of two cars after smashing into other parked vehicles. 

The glint of deadly weapons were visible as the two opposing groups clashed on Edgware Road over the Halloween weekend.  

It was the latest in another bloody weekend in the capital, with police also launching a murder investigation after a man was found shot in the head in Ilford on Sunday.

The 30-year-old victim's death marks the 101st murder on the streets of London this year.    

In the footage of the gang brawl, the driver of one vehicle narrowly missed being hit as streams of hooded figures exited both cars.

One can be seen holding a large machete as they run past the camera.

The car hit an Uber and at least four other parked cars.  

Locals spoke of their shock at the scenes.

Donna Marie said: 'So glad I'm currently planning my escape!'

Another - called Paul - said: 'These boys just need a nice community centre to attend and sort all their issues out across a good old game of chess.'

Their comments come after a man who was shot in the head on Sunday was declared dead at the scene.

It is the latest in a surge of violent crimes in the capital over the course of the last 12 months.  

Metropolitan Police officers and the London Ambulance Service found the victim with gunshot injuries to the head after the shooting in Balfour Road, Ilford, east London, at 10.14pm on Sunday.

Police have not arrested anyone. The victim's next of kin has been infomed, although formal identification is yet to take place. 

Violent crime has soared to its highest level in a decade after a surge in drug feuds, domestic abuse and hate crime, statistics show.

Drug rivalries became increasingly violent in the first phase of the coronavirus pandemic in order to retain their turf.

Violence outside of venues also soared as lockdown restrictions loosened due to 'pent up rage', according to police.

Analysis of police data by The Times shows violent offences were at their highest level in nearly ten years across two thirds of forces in England and Wales in July.

Violent crime was higher last month than in July 2019 in 31 of 39 police forces who published their statistics.

Gloucestershire saw violent crime rise by 39 per cent while Durham had and increase of 35 per cent, the two highest rises in the country.  

London Mayor Sadiq Khan warned of a spike in violent crime in the capital after the pandemic sent crime rates plummeting by a quarter in England and Wales.

July saw 17 killings in the city - two more than July 2019. January this year saw 11 homicides in the capital, and February just seven.

There were 19,104 violent crimes in June - compared to 17,264 in February and 18,569 in January.

The Met Police has been approached for comment.
