Three people have been arrested after a man was stabbed in a flat in Hampshire.

Police said the 41-year-old was attacked in the early hours of Saturday in a flat above a shop in the High Street in Lee-on-Solent.

Det Insp Joanne Smith said: "This victim received some nasty injuries to his face and hand in this attack." He was taken to hospital in Portsmouth.

She said three adults were arrested as they tried to leave the High Street in a taxi.

Police have been carrying out house-to-house inquiries in the area and are asking for anyone who may have been passing the area and saw anything suspicious to contact them.

Det Insp Smith added: "It's possible anyone passing between midnight and 2am may have seen people hanging around the area who may have been involved. If so, we'd like to hear from them as they may be important witnesses."
