A number of town centre roads, which had been closed as part of a police probe into a treble stabbing, have been reopened.

Bold Street fully closed between Glover Street and Canal Street.

Three men have been arrested, two on suspicion of attempted murder and one on suspicion of assault.

A 17-year-old lad arrested on suspicion of attempted murder over the stabbing in St Helens town centre has been released from police custody.

The other two males remain in custody for questioning.

Three men remain in hospital receiving treatment. One, a 20-year-old man is in a critical condition, while two others, aged 18 and 21, are described as being in a stable condition.
