A man has been charged with five counts of attempted murder following a series of knife attacks in north London.

Jason Kakaire, 29, from Cameron Close, Edmonton, will appear in custody at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on Friday.

The five stabbings happened in the area between Saturday and Tuesday.

A man in his 30s was left in a critical condition when he was stabbed in Fairfield Road in the latest incident.

It followed the stabbing of four other people in the Edmonton area over last weekend that left two critically hurt and one with potentially life-changing injuries.

Scotland Yard said it was not seeking anyone else in connection with the investigation.
