Police officers were called out last night following reports of a large fight in Gedling in which a man was reportedly stabbed.

Officers say his injuries aren’t believed to be life-threatning or life-altering.

A 30-year old man has now been arrested.

The incident happened in Main Road and the area was cordoned off near the Gedling Inn, with the road being closed to traffic overnight.

A smaller cordon was put in place this morning and traffic was again allowed to pass through the village.

Detective Inspector, Pam Dowson, of Nottinghamshire Police confirmed that police had been called out to the village.

She said: “Officers were called to reports of a large fight on Main Road, Gedling at around 10pm yesterday (October 22).

“Having arrived swiftly at the scene, officers located a man who had sustained what is alleged to be stabbing related wounds.

“His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening or life-altering.

“A 30-year-old man has been arrested in connection with this incident for affray and inquiries remain ongoing
