North Walkden Primary School stabbing victim discharged

A man who was stabbed in the chest in front of children outside a Greater Manchester primary school has been discharged from hospital.

He was attacked as parents waited for their children at North Walkden Primary School around 15:30 GMT on Friday.

Officers believe he was in a row with a man and woman outside the school gates in Whittle Drive, Walkden.

A police spokesman said his injuries were not life-threatening and he had since been released from hospital.

Det Insp Ben Hart, of Greater Manchester Police added: "As our enquiries are progressing we now understand the victim, the man and woman are all known to each other.

"We believe there has been an ongoing dispute which has erupted into violence outside the primary school."

Bernard Pennington, the school's chairman of governors, said: "This is a good school and the parents are good parents.

"This is a one-off which we hope will never be repeated."

The school, in Salford, has more than 200 pupils.
