"Emergency services attended and three people have been taken to hospital with injuries.

"No arrests have been made and enquiries remain ongoing."

Police released images of a man they want to speak to after a mum was stabbed in front of her young child in a "vicious and unprovoked attack".

Detectives said they were treating the incident in south Manchester on Saturday afternoon as attempted murder.

The victim, 24, was walking with her five-year-old son on Rudheath Avenue, Withington, when she was attacked by a man with a knife.

Paramedics rushed to the scene before the woman was taken to hospital where she was said to be in a stable condition.

Her child had no visible injuries, police said.
