Double stabbing "rare and appalling"

A man's been stabbed to death and his partner is critical after an attack at a caravan park in Lancashire.

Police were called to Stud Farm in Heysham in the early hours and found the pair with serious knife wounds. Both were taken to hospital but the 28 year old man died soon after.

Police have arrested a man in Stoke on Trent on suspicion of murder and attempted murder. It's thought the victims and the offender were known to one another.

This is a rare and appalling incident whereby a young man has lost his life and a young woman remains in hospital fighting for her life.

“An investigation is underway into the circumstances of exactly what has happened but I’d appeal to anybody that is staying at the caravan park or lives in the immediate vicinity that heard any commotion or witnessed any part of the incident to contact police.

“Officers working on the inquiry are searching for the knife that they believe was used in the attack but this remains outstanding at this time."

– Detective Superintendent Paul Withers
