Young girl ‘fighting for life’ after being ‘attacked by two women’

Police are at the scene of serious incident in Bolton amid reports that a young girl has been stabbed.

Eyewitnesses say they saw the victim being given CPR as two adults stood "covered in blood" nearby.

The girl is said to have been attacked by two women who then ran off across the park.

Police have confirmed they are dealing with an incident.

Emergency services were called to park on Sunday afternoon and there were reports that an Air Ambulance helicopter also attended the scene.

Several police cars could be seen parked outside and entrances to the park have been cordoned off.

Kelly Roscoe posted on Facebook: "Me and Lee have just taken Ava for some fresh air on Queen's Park and have just witnessed a little girl being given CPR with two adults stood covered in blood (presuming this was her parents)

"A couple of people said that two women had stabbed the little girl and ran off!!

And a witness told the Manchester Evening News: "There's around 10 police cars I can see.

"It's a really heavy police presence. Both main entrances to the park are closed and it looks like the entire park has been cordoned off.

"There's around 10 officers guarding one entrance. Ther's a bit of a crowd of people forming as well."

Greater Manchester Police have not yet commented.
