There is a game of Chinese whispers afoot in Peckham today: why is the whole of the main shopping thoroughfare shut?
The butcher just shrugged.
The greengrocer shook his head.
The police will only say 'a serious incident''.
But the chap in the cash and carry says it was a triple stabbing with two dead.
Idle speculation? We hope so. But nothing good ever emerges from behind police tape. We'll keep you posted.
