Londoners were given a warning after dashcam footage of a man being stabbed was circulating on social media.
The video was too graphic to be shown.
A community group issued a stark warning aimed at east-end locals accompanying the footage on Twitter on Wednesday.
It read: “Man has been stabbed in the back and face after an altercation. You can’t trust anyone these days. Please stay safe.”
The attack was captured on dashcam footage at around 8.20am on Wednesday.
