Two teenagers have been taken to hospital after they were stabbed in broad daylight at a shopping mall in Luton.

Police were called to 'The Mall' at around 2.30pm on Sunday afternoon to find two 17-year-olds seriously injured. They are still in hospital but not in a life-threatening condition.

The centre has since reopened after an investigation.

Police say they are increasing patrols in and around the Mall and in the town centre, and are asking anyone who saw the incident to come forward.

This happened in broad daylight in a busy shopping centre and has obviously caused some real concern to members of the public.

Such violence in a public place will not be tolerated and we are committed to tackling anyone who thinks it is acceptable to act in this manner. We are aware that there are a lot of images and video being circulated on social media, and would urge anyone who captured the incident on their phones to contact police.

We are also keen to speak to anyone who has any information about what happened.
