Eight arrests after knife injuries in Lincolnshire

Seven men and a teenage boy have been arrested after a fight in Lincolnshire in which several people suffered knife injuries.

Police were called to an area outside Banovallum School in Boston Road, Horncastle, late on Saturday.

A 14-year-old boy later needed hospital treatment for a leg wound. The other casualties had leg and hand injuries.

The eight people arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent have all been released on police bail.

They were three men from Horncastle and four men and a 14-year-old boy from Leicestershire.

A knife was recovered from the scene but it is not known if this was used to inflict the injuries involved, police said.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses.
