Police officers were called to the scene in Nacton Crescent shortly after 11pm yesterday by the ambulance service who were helping someone who was suffering from stab wounds.

A man was taken to hospital where he remains with injuries to his arm which are not thought to be life-threatening.

Officers say no-one has been arrested in connection with the incident and that investigations are ongoing.

Several police cars are parked up at the scene and a large section of Nacton Crescent has been taped off by detectives.

A path between the road and Coniston Square is also cordoned off by police while they investigate the incident.

Neighbours have reported seeing two ambulances on the road at around 11.30pm before a number of police cars descended on the area.

The stabbing happened only metres away from Packard Avenue, where Tavis Spencer-Aitkens was killed in June 2018.

Five people have now been jailed for a combined total of 104 years for his murder.
