Police have said that they do not expect to make any arrests after a man was allegedly stabbed in Burnley yesterday morning.

The 29-year-old victim was found in Padiham Road outside the Tim Bobbin Hotel with four puncture wounds to his arm, leg, rib area, and backside, at 8-15am.

Emergency services were called and he was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital but the victim discharged himself just a few hours later.

A spokesman for the police said: “There have not been any arrests and it is unlikely that there will be unless new evidence comes to light.”

Anyone with any information can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
