A 14-year-old boy has been stabbed in the back in Liverpool.

The teenager is in a "serious but stable" condition in hospital following the attack in Toxteth on Sunday.

Police believe the boy may have been involved in an earlier "altercation between a group of around eight males on Lodge Lane" at around 17:30 BST.

Det Insp Debbie Tipton appealed for witnesses and dashcam footage of the "shocking incident" that happened "in a busy area in broad daylight".

Merseyside Police set up cordons in Seaport Street and Lodge Lane for forensic examinations.

The teenager is the second 14-year-old to be stabbed in Merseyside over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend after an attack in Crosby on Friday.
