She added: "One person has gone to a local hospital as a precaution. It’s not currently an ongoing major incident."

Police left the scene between 9.30 and 10pm.

One person living nearby said: "There were two police cars at one end of the street and an ambulance at the other side. The ambulance left and there was what looked to be a plain-clothed officer and a forensics van.

"They were bagging up clothes and some other bits in paper bags in the middle of the street

"Police knocked on everyone’s door, they said there had been some kind of fight and there was blood on the floor."

An update from police this morning revealed officers were called after reports emerged a man in his 30s was assaulted by two men.

A spokesman for the force said: "Nobody has been arrested at this stage and enquiries are ongoing.
