Police said a group of teenagers chased four men in their 20s, and two suffered stab wounds to their legs.

Two boys aged 14, two aged 15 and one aged 16 were held on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent.

They, along with another 14-year-old boy previously arrested on suspicion of the same charge, have been released while inquiries continue.
