Man stabbed with broken bottle at Kirkcudbright festival

Police have appealed for witnesses after a man was stabbed with a broken bottle at a music festival in Dumfries and Galloway.

The 23-year-old was attacked during a fight in the St Mary's Isle area of Kirkcudbright at about 23:00 on Saturday.

His injuries were not thought to be life threatening.

Officers were particularly keen to speak to the occupants of a silver Rover or MG which had a loud exhaust.

A spokesman added: "Police would like to speak to anyone who attended the festival who may have witnessed the incident or who saw anyone leaving the area in a hurry."
