Police say a teenager arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent remains in custody for questioning.

They say locals will notice an increased police presence in the area over the coming days.

I understand this will cause some concern given the ages of those involved but I hope the fact that we have made an arrest - along with an increased police presence in the area - will provide the local community with some reassurance.
