Youths opened fire as parents went to collect their children from nursery in Stoke Newington yesterday afternoon (March 25).

Gunshots were fired in Allen Road shortly before 4.15pm.

A bystander, who asked not to be named, said she saw two teenage boys - one carrying a gun and one brandishing a knife - chasing another boy

Ironic isn't it? 'Best place', just as another person stabbed to death in Stamford Hill. Those local government morons who judge these vacuous awards, should come and live here. Probably felt sorry for Jules
