Three people have been treated at hospital for injuries following reports of a stabbing in Denton.

Emergency services were called to Yew Tree Road at around 9.30am on Saturday morning (18 March). 

Greater Manchester Police say a woman was taken to hospital for further treatment but her injuries are not believed to be life threatening. 

Two other people 'presented' at hospital with serious but not life threatening injuries. 

Detectives believe the incident to be 'isolated' with no wider risk to the public but extra officers are being deployed in the area to reassure the community. 

Detective Sergeant Pete Goddard, of GMP Tameside district, said: "A scene will continue to be in place whilst we conduct further searches and enquiries. If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to one of our officers, they are here to help.

"GMP are taking a robust approach to knife crime in the Greater Manchester area, and this is no exception.

"I would encourage anyone with information that may help officers in their initial investigation to get in touch with GMP by calling 0161 856 9262 or 101 quoting log 1077 of 18/3/2023.

Alternatively, you can report information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
