Police are appealing for witnesses after two men were stabbed outside a night club this morning. Police were called to the scene in Thurland Street at 4.16am this morning. One victim, aged 24, sustained injuries to his chest and remains in a serious condition in hospital. The other, aged 18, was treated for a leg injury.
Detective Superintendent Hayley Williams, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a very serious assault that left two young men in hospital.
“We are working hard to understand what happened in the moments before, during and after this incident and are asking for any remaining witnesses to come forward.
“We would also like to speak to any taxi or bus drivers who may have may have noticed an injury to one of their passengers, or to anyone else who has noticed unexplained injures to someone they know or blood stains to their clothing.
“Several police cordons are in place across the city centre in relation to this incident. Whilst we appreciate these may cause disruption to local businesses, it is essential imperative that we gather all available evidence about what happened in the early hours of this morning.”
Police are calling for witnesses to find the culprits after the incident.
Hundreds of thousands of Brits flocked the streets last night in celebration of the new year, with a number of clubs and bars hosting events.
