Police today launched an appeal for witnesses and information about the attack.

A spokesman for the Met said: “At this early stage detectives believe that the victims sustained their injuries after two mopeds each with a rider and pillion passenger approached them.

“The pillion passengers then attacked the victims before fleeing on the waiting mopeds, heading in the direction of Mount Nod Road. Neither of the pillion passengers is believed to have worn a helmet.”
