Police are appealing for information after a woman was found with stab wounds at an address in the town.

At approximately 4.30am yesterday, police were called to an address in Gladstone Court, where a woman in her twenties was found with life threatening injuries.

She was treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to hospital.

Her condition is said to be serious but stable.

Following enquiries a 25-year-old woman was located and arrested nearby on suspicion of attempt murder.

She is currently in custody.

This would appear to be an attack by one female upon another, although it is unclear why this has occurred.

Our enquiries are at an early stage and we would appeal for anyone who was in or around the Gladstone Court area of Dewsbury in the early hours of this morning, or anyone who may have information about this incident to contact police on 101, quoting log 409 of 9 July.
