A man in his 30s was seriously injured, and another male was arrested, after an alleged stabbing in Grantham in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

They were then later recalled to the same address where a man in his 30s had sustained a serious injury consistent with a knife wound. He is in hospital getting treatment for his injuries, which are not life threatening, according to Lincolnshire Police.
