Two people - including a 16-year-old - have been arrested after a man was left with potentially “life-changing injuries" following a stabbing in Bristol. 

The injured man, who is in his 30s, was found in Woodmead Gardens, Hartcliffe, by patrolling officers after members of the public stopped them and reported the incident.

The officers began first aid and the man went to hospital with injuries initially described as potentially life-changing.

His next of kin are aware, Avon and Somerset Police say.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm at 10.20pm. 

Meanwhile, a man in his 20s was arrested at 11.30pm on suspicion of attempted murder. Both remain in police custody at this time.

A spokesperson for the force said: “A cordon remains in place on Woodmead Gardens and you'll see an increased presence in the area while our investigations continue.

“If you saw what happened or have any other information, dashcam, doorbell or other footage which could help the police investigation, please call 101 and give the reference 5223127608.”
