Unconfirmed reports suggest a serious attack may have taken place outside a Northampton pub last night, leaving a large area cordoned of by police.

Eyewitnesses have described how squad cars rushed to Palmerston road, just off the Wellingborough Road in Northampton at around 5.45pm last night.

An area was cordoned off by the Fiddlers pub, with one witness describing a "heavy police and ambulance presence" in the area around the time.

Last night forensic officers remained at the scene amid rumours that a man had been stabbed repeatedly.

A witness has told the Chron he saw a man subject to a violent attack, though police are yet to confirm what happened.
