A man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing that took place earlier this month.

Police swooped on a vehicle at the BP petrol station in Wiggenhall Road, Watford, at around 9pm yesterday (Wednesday).

Hertfordshire Constabulary says the arrest is linked to a stabbing in Horseshoe Lane in Garston on Sunday July 5.

One man was found with stab wounds after an incident involving four men at around 12.45pm outside Woodside Leisure Centre.

Police cordoned off a bus stop and service road on the afternoon of July 5 and carried out enquiries into the stabbing.
