A PICTURE from the scene of a major incident in Leigh last night, has revealed the huge emergency service presence.

The incident is reported to be a stabbing, but this is yet to be confirmed by police.

It has been suggested on social media that a 14-year-old has been stabbed.

It is also reported that three people tried to save the teenager. 

Police and ambulances were seen inside a cordon on the Leigh Broadway, with the incident reported to have taken place outside the Broadway Grill.


Leigh has been hit with consistent anti-social behaviour in the last year, with repeated dispersal orders introduced by police.

A public space protection order (PSPO) for the area is currently in a consultation phase.
