A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a woman was stabbed outside an Oxford supermarket.

The victim, who is in her 20s, is believed to have been with a child when she was attacked at 15:10 GMT on Tuesday.

After the attack outside the Co-op store in London Road she was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital with serious injuries, where she remains.
