A 19-year-old man is in hospital after a stabbing in an Aspley park.

Nottinghamshire Police have appealed for information following the incident which happened in King George’s Park at 10pm last night.

The teenager’s injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

A police cordon remains in place at the park as officers investigate the scene.

One police car could be seen in front of the main entrance to the park on Aspley Lane.

Samantha Hutchins, 36, lives on Aspley Lane and said she regularly went to the park with her children.
She said: “To see the park closed off by police is such a scary thing. The thought that this could’ve been one of my kids is sickening, my thoughts go out to the family of the boy.”
Builder Alan Rowley, 33, from Lenton wasn’t surprised by the incident.
He said: “Am I shocked by it? No, unfortunately not. And that’s not to say I’m not upset or affected by it, I’m just saying it’s not very unusual.”
Retired Elaine Miller, 67, has lived in the area for a year.
She said: “To hear of a such a thing happening here is a real concern.”

Six people have been arrested on suspicion on affray, including two 19-year-olds, two 18-year-olds, a 17-year-old and a 16-year-old.
