Four people have been taken to hospital after a group of masked attackers launched a "frightening" knife attack at a flat.

Six men burst into the property in Peach Street, Wokingham, at about 20:00 GMT on Thursday, police said.

Three men and a woman, all aged in their 20s, were injured in the attack.

The woman and two men suffered knife wounds, although police said their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.

A 29-year-old man sustained a minor injury and has been discharged from hospital.

Thames Valley Police described it as a "frightening, targeted attack".

The suspected offenders are described by police as black males wearing balaclavas.

Officers want to speak to a man and woman seen in a light blue Ford Focus near the flat.
