Manchester Arndale stabbings: Five hurt as man arrested


Five people have been injured in a knife attack at the Arndale Centre in Manchester.

A man, 41, is being held on suspicion of terror offences after three people were stabbed and two others were hurt.

The centre was evacuated at about 11:15 BST when a man with a large knife started “lunging and attacking people”, according to police.

The attacker chased two police community support officers (PCSOs) before being detained, the force said.

One witness said they saw a man “running around with a knife lunging at multiple people”, while another described people “screaming and running”.

The centre was put on lockdown as officers confronted the attacker, with some shoppers taking refuge in stores.
