Police have arrested two teenagers after two males were stabbed following a street brawl.

The incident took place on Lower Hall Street, with witnesses reporting seeing several youths fighting in the middle of the street.

The fracas left an 18-year-old man with a stab wound to the side of his head, and a 16-year-old boy was also stabbed under the arm.

The injured pair were both taken to hospital, where they are reported to be in a stable condition.

Officers from Merseyside Police described their injuries as being "consistent with a sharp weapon being used."

Two 16-year-olds from Huyton and Widnes were arrested on suspicion of assault.
