Two shootings in London in the space of an hour have left a 17-year-old girl dead and a boy, 16, critically ill.

The teenage girl was found with a bullet wound in Tottenham on Monday night and pronounced dead at the scene.

The boy had been found with gunshot wounds in Walthamstow earlier, with another boy, 15 who had stab injuries.

"There are so many drugs, stabbings and killings"

The shootings come amid concerns over rising violent crime in London. Police do not know if the attacks are connected.

A local resident, who did not want to be named, said she heard multiple shots, which sounded like a "bomb" exploding.

She said: "It's not nice. I've lived here for 40 years, and in the last two or three years, it's become not a nice place.

"There are so many drugs, stabbings and killings."

Formal identification has yet to take place, but the girl's next of kin have been informed of her death.

Police were called to Markhouse Road, Walthamstow, following reports of gunfire.

The 16-year-old boy was found with bullet wounds and taken to an east London hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.
