We are determined to find those responsible but need the public’s help to do so. There are a number of nightclubs in that area. I would appeal for anyone who was in the area and saw something that could be helpful to the enquiry to come forward. If you took mobile phone footage or were driving past and caught some footage on your dash-cam, please let us know. It could be vital evidence.

We treat all knife crime seriously and the force continues its efforts to target those carrying knives, and is working with partners to educate people about the risks and harm caused by carrying knives."

– Detective Sergeant Frank Guddemi, Nottinghamshire Police
