A police cordon has been established in St Ann’s after a teenager was found with injuries to their leg and hand. Nottinghamshire Live was informed of the cordon in St Ann’s Well Road by a resident at around 6.30pm on Wednesday, March 17. It has been said four police cars and numerous officers, from Nottinghamshire Police, are currently at the scene.
A section of the road has been taped off and is impassable at present, and a picture from the scene shows a fairly expansive cordon in place. Inspector Ben Lawrence said: “Nottinghamshire Police officers were called to St Ann’s Well Road in St Ann’s at around 5.20pm on Wednesday (17 March 2021) following a report of a knife incident. “An ambulance arrived at the scene to treat a teenager who has suffered injuries to his leg and hand.
