Scotland Yard admitted yesterday it had run out of detectives to investigate murders as six teenagers were knifed in just 90 minutes on another blood-soaked night in the capital.
The force was forced to call in neighbouring City of London Police to carry out an inquiry into a killing in East London this week.
It took the highly unusual action as the capital’s soaring murder toll hit 55.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick admitted it was a ‘very worrying’ time as she was forced to deny her officers had ‘lost control of crime’.
She said: ‘Over the last three months and in particular in the last several days, we have had a unusual spike in horrible homicides, ghastly events, that have taken people’s lives and devastated other people’s lives.
‘It is important that we investigate those to the best of our ability and that we bring people to justice. I anticipate that we will. We are very good at that.
‘We work really closely with the City of London Police. We frequently help them with serious crime. Occasionally they help us. This is not an unprecedented time, but it is a very worrying time.’
In a land without a constitution guaranteeing free speech, thought crimes are met with a heavy hand.

But the state has never been about existing for the good of the people, only the vehicle for executing the agenda of those in power.
