Investigation underway following reports of man stabbed in Liverpool City Centre ​

A large cordon remains in place around Whitechapel and parts of Lord Street.

Merseyside Police are investigating the following reports of a man stabbed in Liverpool city centre this morning, Wednesday 27 December.

At around 5.30am patrols located a man, who is in his 20s, at the junction of Church Street and Whitechapel with stab wounds.

Officers gave medical assistance to the man. The North West Ambulance Service was contacted and the man has been taken to hospital in a critical condition.

A further two males have also self-presented at hospital with injuries. One of the males, in his 20s, had a stab wound to the back and the second, also in his 20s, had a laceration to the head.

It is believed the incident is linked to an earlier disturbance involving a large group of males on Victoria Street.

A large cordon is in place in Liverpool city centre and a number of roads cordoned off as CCTV and witness enquiries are currently being carried out.
