Police tape at scene of shooting of WPCs Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone

A man is in hospital tonight after suffering a serious stab wound to the hand in an incident in Gloucester.

The victim, aged in his 20s, flagged down a passing motorist near Gloucester Park just after 8pm tonight.

The motorist drove the man to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and while it was initially believed his injuries may have been life threatening they have now been confirmed as serious but not life threatening.  The victim will remain in hospital overnight and will then require further treatment on his hand.

The incident is believed to have taken place close to a zebra crossing in the Park Road/Wellington Street area and officers have cordoned off the possible scene while an investigation continues.

Anyone who knows anything about what happened but hasn’t come forward yet should call 101 and quote incident 452 of 4 July.
