Police say two 16-year-olds were stabbed to death at two locations about a mile apart in south-east London.

Detectives are investigating whether there is a link between the two murders believed to have occurred at the same time.

Officers were called around 5:10 p.m. Saturday to reports of injuries at Sewell Road, Abbey Wood and Titmuss Avenue, Thamesmead.

A homicide investigation into the death is underway.

Due to the timing and distance of the close incidents, officers are trying to establish any link between the two deaths, the Metropolitan Police said.

Crime scenes were executed at both locations, and the Section 60 order, which gives officers additional search powers, is in effect until 8 a.m. Sunday.

Police said relatives of the two boys will be assisted by specialist officers.
