A man, 19, died at the scene. His next of kin has been informed.

“I am urging anyone who witnessed this attack, or who saw someone running away from the park, to please come forward and contact my team,” Detective Chief Inspector Matthew Webb said.

“Although the stabbing took place away from local roads, I’m certain that there are people who would have noticed something that seemed out of place or unusual, or someone behaving in a suspicious way,” he continued.

“Please call us no matter how insignificant you think may think your information is. Anything could help us to identify the person responsible.”There have been no arrests at this early stage and enquiries continue.”
