A man is in a critical condition after being stabbed reportedly during a fight involving a group of men in Manchester.

The 31-year-old was attacked outside the Printworks in the city centre, at about 04:00 GMT.

He was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary after suffering wounds to his back and abdomen, Greater Manchester Police said.

A second man was also taken to hospital, but the extent of his injuries was not clear, the force said.

A witness, who asked to remain anonymous, told BBC Radio Manchester: "I saw a groups of guys, like a running battle, running backwards and forwards.

"Some of them had bottles. I saw a man on the floor on all fours with people round him. I'm sure he was the one that was injured. I hope he gets through this."
