They arrived to find two men in their 30s and 40s with stab wounds. They were taken to hospital for treatment and later discharged.

One nearby resident said he saw flashing blue lights outside Bower Terrace at around 1am.

He said: "There were a couple of ambulances and a police car and then I saw another ambulance car arrive and someone being carried out of a flat on a stretcher. I'm not sure if that was the same incident though."

He added: "It's usually quite a quiet area so you don't really expect this."

Another neighbour said the car park area in front of the Citizens Advice Bureau block, next to Bower Terrace, was cordoned off by police during the night.

She added: "I saw some people sat on a wall in front crying, so I thought it was something serious."

A second man, who lives in a flat opposite where the incident happened, said: "I didn't see anything, I just heard loads of shouting and then sirens."

Police are now appealing for information while inquiries continue.

Anyone with information that could help is asked to call police on 01622 604100, quoting reference 46/132165/20.
