They discovered a man in his twenties who had been stabbed at the scene before two other men in their twenties with stab wounds presented themselves to police.

Two men in their twenties were arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing serious bodily harm and remain in police custody. Several roads in the area were closed and the scene was cordoned off last night as emergency personnel responded to the incident.
