Tragedy in Harold Hill

Early on Saturday morning, the Community learnt of the utterly senseless loss of a 17 year-old girl from a fatal stabbing in Harold Hill at 9.25pm on Friday night.

Julia Lopez MP for Hornchurch & Upminster tweeted: The whole community will share my distress over the utterly senseless loss of a young woman from a fatal stabbing in Harold Hill last night. I’ve spoken this morning to Deputy Mayor for Policing & contacted Borough Commander, who ask ppl with info to call Crimestoppers anonymously.

A few hours later, Julia Lopez MP put out an update to say that she has now had the opportunity to speak with Mayor ⁦Sadiq Khan and our Borough Commander Jason Gwillim and that they are working together to prevent another tragedy like this happening. The full statement can be read here.
