Manchester Victoria Station stabbings: Three people 'knifed by man' in frenzied attack

At least three people have been stabbed by a man with a 'long knife' in frenzied attack at Victoria Station in Manchester. British Transport Police [BTP] were called to the scene just before 9pm this evening as a man wielding a knife stabbed members of the public. Two members of the public, a man and a woman, and a BTP officer were taken to hospital with stab injuries. The incident happened at Victoria Station which is just metres away from the Manchester Arena where 22 people were killed in a suicide bombing terror attack on 22 May 2017. Sam Clack, a producer at the BBC, tweeted how he nearly jumped on the tracks to get away from the knifeman. He said: "Just been very close to the most terrifying thing. Man stabbed in Manchester Victoria station on tram platform.
