Sadiq Khan has spoken out after two teenagers were murdered within 12 minutes of each other in Greenwich and Wandsworth.

The broad daylight murders happened just 12 minutes apart from each other yesterday afternoon.

A teenager was found dead at the scene after being shot in a Plumstead car park.

Another teenager was then stabbed to death in Wandsworth.

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has now responded and has said that he is sickened to hear that two lives had to been ended.

He said: "Our overstretched police are working around the clock to keep Londoners safe. They need our support to end this scourge of violence.

"Anybody who has information about what happened either in Wandsworth or Greenwich should do the right thing and call the police."

Tooting MP Rosena Allin-Khan said the suspected murder on Deeside Road was "heartbreaking" and "absolutely tragic".

"My heart goes out to the family of this victim after this absolutely tragic incident," she wrote on Twitter.

"I spoke at length with people on the Aboyne Estate tonight, anyone with concerns can contact me - I'm here to listen.

"Sending love to the Tooting family tonight - this is heartbreaking."
