Two men were taken to hospital after being stabbed in a homophobic attack outside a south London nightclub. The men, in their 20s and 30s, were attacked outside the Two Brewers in Clapham High Street on Sunday night. The Met Police said it was treating the stabbings as homophobic. The men have since been sent home from hospital. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said there was “no place for hate in London”, adding that he stood with LGBTQI+ Londoners. No arrests have been made in connection to the incident. Det Insp Gary Castle said he was “aware of the shock this attack will cause members of the LGBT+ community”, adding “an urgent investigation is ongoing”. (…) A Two Brewers spokesperson said the venue was “fully supporting” the police with their investigation “regarding this unprovoked attack”, adding, “our thoughts are with the victims and their families”. “We would like to reassure the LGBTQIA+ community that the safety and security of our guests remains our number one priority,” they said. “Our CCTV has been handed over to the police and enhanced security measures have now been put in place.”
