Thurrock: Two Men Left With Slash Wounds

Two people have been left with slash wounds to the face and neck after a possible knife attack in Stanford-le-Hope.

One of the men, a 27 year-old from the area, had to have more than 70 stitches after the incident. An 18 year-old man had a minor cut to his face and Essex Police think there may be another man who was injured as well.

Officers say it appears the attacks seem to be linked to people who were drinking at The Inn On The Green in Stanford-le-Hope at around 1am on Saturday, June 16.

A 20 year-old man from the area has been arrested over the incidents, but Essex Police say they need more information and are calling for more witnesses to come forward.
