Police in Cumbria say a 22-year-old man's been arrested this afternoon after a teenager was stabbed in Barrow.
They're still appealing for witnesses after a 16-year-old boy was seriously injured in Broad Close in the town last night.
Officers were called by the North West Ambulance Service at 11.30pm after a report of the boy having been stabbed.
He is in hospital today where he remains in a stable but critical condition.
Investigations are underway and as a result a larger than normal police presence is likely to be seen in the town.
Detective Chief Inspector David Stalker said:
- Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or email email@example.com.
