"Anyone with information should call us on 101 quoting ref 21000649617."

A police neighbourhood beat bus will be in High Street today from 10am to 4pm, if anyone wants to speak to an officer about the incident or any other concerns.

The shocking incident is the latest stabbing involving a teenage boy in the north of the county this year.

Dylan Holliday, also 16, was fatally stabbed in August on Wellingborough's Queensway estate.
