Insp James Williams said detectives did not believe the stabbing was a random attack, but "appears to be linked to drug-related activity".

"That does not make it any less serious," he said.

"I want people to be reassured that we have been carrying out ongoing operations with regards to knife crime and drug dealing and we know these are issues which concern local people."
