A man who was stabbed in the chest during a "disagreement" in a nursing home car park in Manchester has been critically injured.

Police were called to the Royal Elms Nursing Home on Windsor Road, Newton Heath, at about 22:45 BST on Friday.

The 37-year-old victim was discovered with serious injuries and taken to hospital.

Two men, aged 51 and 24, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Det Insp Mark Tootill, of Greater Manchester Police, said: "From what we understand, there has been a disagreement in the car park of the nursing home which has led to this man being critically injured.

"Due to his injuries, we have not been able to speak to the victim at this time.

"Although two arrests have been made, I am still keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed what happened and would ask anyone who has to please call us as soon as possible."
