Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

AN in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der way af­ter two women were taken to hospi­tal fol­low­ing a dou­ble stab­bing.

Emer­gency ser­vices were called to Ather­ton Road in Hind­ley Green, Wigan, just af­ter 10.30am yes­ter­day.

Two women were taken to hospi­tal, ac­cord­ing to the North West Am­bu­lance Ser­vice.

Po­lice say both of the women taken to hospi­tal fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent were in their 20s.

One suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries and re­mains in hospi­tal for treat­ment.

The other woman’s in­juries were orig­i­nally de­scribed as ‘se­ri­ous’ but GMP later said they were mi­nor and she was dis­charged.

It is be­lieved the in­ci­dent took place at a house. Pho­tos and videos posted on so­cial me­dia pic­tured two air am­bu­lances land­ing at the scene.

Ather­ton Road was closed in both di­rec­tions be­tween Leigh Road and Westleigh Lane and a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion scene put in place.

GMP of­fi­cers con­firmed they are not look­ing for any­one else in con­nec­tion with the stab­bings and said the in­ci­dent was not be­ing treated as a ter­ror­re­lated crime.
