Three boys, aged 15, 15 and 17, from Anfield, Litherland and Crosby, have been arrested.

The 15-year-old, from Anfield, has been arrested on suspicion of assault. The two others were arrested on suspicion of affray.

The 14-year-old boy suffered a stab wound to his armpit but did not require hospital treatment, police said.

A knife believed to have been used in the attack has been recovered.

Det Insp Tony Roberts asked for any witnesses to contact police.
