A teenager has been rushed to hospital with what are thought to be "serious" stab wounds, as a police manhunt continues.

After Hertfordshire Constabulary said they were responding to an injured 19-year-old in Blackmoor Lane, near Croxley Business Park, the force has now confirmed the man had suffered suspected stab wounds.

His injuries have been described as not life threatening or life changing, after he was taken to hospital this afternoon.

Officers were called by the ambulance service at around 12.25pm today (June 6) after an “incident”, a police spokesperson said.
