One eyewitness said: "There was a fight in the street and it was just a little stabbing that's all."

A bus driver, who saw the incident but did not want to be named, said a young man was stabbed near the junction with Club Street.

He added: "Somebody was stabbed earlier on. It wasn't a kid but I'd say it was a young man."

Ellsemere Road is closed and two buses are also parked up on the street.

A number of bus services are being diverted while the investigation is carried out.
