A woman has been arrested on suspicion of carrying "a large knife" in a residential street.

Police were called to Cadoxton Avenue, in Tottenham, at 8.53pm on Wednesday (May 15) to reports of a woman with a knife.

Officers attended and arrested a woman on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon.

She has been taken into custody.

Describing the knife as "a large machete", Tottenham Conservatives said on X: "The violence on our streets is becoming relentless. It must be stopped & can be stopped." 

On the thread people retweeted a comment by @YvetteCooperMP who said on X on Wednesday:

"The Conservatives have just voted against banning the sale of ninja swords. It will still be possible to buy them online with barely any checks."

There were no reported injuries.
