A further two individuals believed to be involved have presented at hospital with serious injuries, but they are not thought to be life threatening.

Detective Sergeant Pete Goddard of GMP Tameside district said: “A scene will continue to be in place whilst we conduct further searches and enquiries. If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to one of our officers, they are here to help.

“GMP are taking a robust approach to knife crime in the Greater Manchester area, and this is no exception.

“I would encourage anyone with information that may help officers in their initial investigation to get in touch with GMP by calling 0161 856 9262 or 101 quoting log 1077 of 18/3/2023.
