Two boys aged 13 and 15 have been arrested after three men, including a pensioner, were stabbed in Merseyside.

The three men - aged 76, 49 and 20 - were attacked by four youths in a row over van keys stolen in Westfield Avenue, Huyton, on Tuesday evening.

Police said the 20-year-old was stabbed in the chest in Greystone Road and was in a "serious but stable" condition.

Officers said the other two, who were slashed in the face and hands, were now recovering.

The pair were taken to hospital for treatment to their non-life threatening wounds.

Police said a 13-year-old from Huyton and a 15-year-old from Stockbridge Village had been taken into police custody for questioning.

A cordon has been put in place and an investigation is under way to establish the full circumstances of the incident which happened at about 21:15 BST, said police.
