“Thankfully the teenage victim has not suffered life altering injuries. He is due to have surgery.

“Knife crime has no place on our streets and I can imagine the local community are concerned to hear reports of this nature.

“We believe this was an isolated incident where all parties were known to one another and there is no wider risk to the public.

“We are appealing for information and witnesses following the incident. If anyone saw anything suspicious please call 101, quoting incident number 576.”
