A man is in serious condition after being stabbed and hit by a car in Moss Side in Manchester.

It happened on Princess Road close to Asda at about 17:15 BST on Thursday.

Officers called to reports of a disturbance in the street found the 19-year-old with a number of stab wounds and stomach injuries.

He is undergoing surgery after what appears to have been a targeted attack and remains in a serious condition, Greater Manchester police said.

Supt Steve Howard said police are investigating reports of a group of men chasing a lone male down Greenheys Lane at around the same time.

He appealed for witnesses to come forward.
