A man has been slashed in the face during a stabbing outside a gym in Liverpool.

The victim, who in his 20s, was found by police "bleeding heavily" in the car park at PureGym in Sefton Street, Toxteth at 22:55 GMT on Thursday.

Paramedics treated the wound, as well as an injury to his buttocks, at the scene before taking him to hospital.
