THREE people were taken to hospital – including one with serious injuries - after violence flared in Wordsley last night.

Residents on the Wordsley Hospital housing estate off Stream Road reported seeing emergency services flood the scene just after 8.30pm.

Police have now confirmed that a woman received head injuries and a man suffered knife wounds in a domestic disturbance.

A 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and criminal damage after several vehicles were damaged during the affray in Clock Tower View.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police added: “He was also injured during the incident and remains in hospital for treatment. His condition is not deemed to be life threatening or life changing.”

West Midlands Ambulance Service sent two ambulances, two paramedic officers and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene after police alerted paramedics at around 8.40pm.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said: "Three patients received treatment by ambulance staff.

"One man suffered serious injuries and received trauma care on scene before being taken to hospital on blue lights.

"A second man and a woman were also treated on scene for injuries before receiving further treatment in hospital."

Both have since been discharged from hospital, police have now confirmed.
