A Section 60 order is in place until 8pm tonight

A Section 60 order has been put in place in Fishwick after a second teenager was stabbed.


Extra police patrols, including mounted, have been in the area to offer reassurance following yesterday’s assault, in which a 15-year-old boy was slashed in the arm.

A Section 60 order remains in place until 8pm tonight in the area as a preventative measure (see map).

This allows officers to stop and search people and to require the removal of face coverings.
