Man arrested over New Years Eve stabbing at Winsford Railway Station

ON 31 December 2015, a 28 year old, male, from Liverpool, was on the 8.34pm train, from Liverpool Lime Street to Birmingham New Street, when he challenged a group of people over their behaviour. The group is reported to have been made up of 1 man and 4 or 5 women. They are believed to have been throwing objects around the carriage.

The man got off the train at Winsford Railway Station and was followed by the man from that group, who was described as being in his late 20's and of a stocky build.

The man is then believed to have stabbed the victim several times, causing injuries to his groin and upper body, before the injured man was taken to safety by another passenger from the train.

Detective Sergeant Matt Davies from British Transport Police said:- "Thankfully, the victim's injuries are not life threatening, but he remains in Hospital where he has received surgery for his wounds. We are also grateful to the passenger who came to the aid of the victim and took him to a place of safety."

Then on 2 January 2016, a 20 year old local man came forward, following the witness appeal to trace the suspect.

Detective Inspector Glen Alderson from British Transport Police (BTP) said:- "I'd like to thank all those who shared the appeal, which resulted in a man being arrested on suspicion of wounding with intent at 2.45am today. He remains in Police custody and our enquiries into this offence continue. I would urge anyone who has information about what happened, and who we have not yet spoken to, to get in touch."

Anyone with information should call BTP on:- 0800 40 50 40 or text the force on:- '61016', quoting reference:- '454 of 31/12.' Alternatively, details can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111.

MERSEYSIDE Police have confirmed that the 47 year old man who died on Tuesday, 29 December 2015, after falling ill at Cream Nightclub, Liverpool, in the early hours of Sunday, 27 December 2016, was Andrew Glaister, from the Isle of Man. A Home Office Post Mortem took place on Wednesday, 30 December 2016 to establish the cause of death. The death of Mr Glaister, follows the death of 19 year old John Milburn, who also died following a night out at Cream Nightclub in the early hours of Sunday, 27 December 2015. Detective Chief Inspector Mark Kameen said:- "We have launched a comprehensive investigation into the tragic deaths of these 2 men. At this stage of the investigation, we are exploring a number of lines of enquiry. It is however too early to say if the deaths are linked. We are speaking with friends of both victims alongside staff and management from Nation Nightclub, to establish the full circumstances surrounding the movements of both men that night. CCTV is also being examined from the location and surrounding area."
