They said it represented a 38 percent increase over 2014.

But the gap has narrowed in recent years.

Britain's interior ministry said it was consulting on new laws to further restrict unsafe weapons, including banning online stores from delivering knives to residential addresses and making it an offence to possess certain weapons in public. "We need a proper strategy that looks at all of the issues".

It has been revealed that London in the United Kingdom has become notorious as far as murder cases are concerned and it's becoming more like New York City in the United States of America.

London police investigated more murders than their NY counterparts did over the last two months, statistics show, as the British capital's mayor vowed to fight a "violent scourge" on the streets.

The shocking tally means the murder rate in London has risen by 40% in just three years; the stark opposite to New York's crime statistics which have fallen by almost 90% since Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's harsh crackdown in the 1990s.

In the latest violence Monday, a 17-year-old girl was shot dead in Tottenham, north London, in what witnesses described as a drive-by attack.

The 23-year-old was taken to hospital by a friend whom he managed to call after being stabbed in the neck, but died of his injuries later in the evening.

"Victim 1 remains in a critical condition and Victim 2 has life-changing injuries but not life-threatening", the police said.

'We are appealing to anyone who was in the area to come forward.

London mayor Sadiq Khan (pictured above) has been accused of using the latest death to take a swipe at the Tories.

"This government is taking action to restrict access to offensive weapons as well as working to break the deadly cycle of violence and protect our children, families and communities", a Home Office spokesman said.

"The UK has some of the toughest gun laws in the world and we are determined to keep it that way", he said. "She's never hung around with any gang crime or anything".

She warned against trying to identify one single cause for the spike. "She didn't know what to do".

Describing the victim as a "good girl", she said: "She didn't deserve that".

"It's either fight or flight - and invariably it's fight, and they will strike first, whether it's to stab someone or shoot someone", he said.
