A man has denied attempting to kill four men and a woman during a stabbing spree in north London.

Jason Kakaire, 30, from Cameron Close, Edmonton, appeared at the Old Bailey on Friday via video link accused of carrying out knife attacks between March 30 and April 2.

He entered not guilty pleas to attempted murder, an alternative of wounding with intent and possessing a knife in relation to each of the five incidents.

The victims, aged between 23 and 52, were all allegedly attacked in streets in the Edmonton area.

The first victim, a 45-year-old woman, was left paralysed after her spinal cord was severed.

The last victim, a man in his 30s, was left in a critical condition when he was stabbed in Fairfield Road.

Judge Richard Marks QC remanded the defendant into custody ahead of a two-week trial at the Old Bailey on March 2 next year.
