“One man aged in his 30s and one man aged in his 20s sustained stab wounds and both were taken to hospital with injuries not believed to be life threatening.

“A male in his late teens was arrested close to the scene on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent and affray. He is currently in police custody.
