Three teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a 16-year-old boy was stabbed in the chest during a fight.

Merseyside Police said he was found on Okell Drive, Halewood at about 21:00 GMT on Monday.

He was taken to hospital where his condition is described as critical but stable.

Two boys - aged 16 and 17 from Huyton - and a 17-year-old boy from Kirkby are all being questioned by police.
