Police officer left with 'serious injuries' after Manchester sword attack

A police officer has been left with "serious injuries" after being slashed with a sword in Manchester on Sunday.
A 23-year-old man was arrested after the officer was slashed with a sword in Whalley Range at about 1.50pm, Greater Manchester Police said.
The officer is currently in hospital with "serious injuries", the force added.

A number of roads around Demesne Road, the residential street where the incident happened, have been closed off.

Footage of the incident showed two police vans and a car blocking Demesne Road as officers get out of the vans, some with riot shields.

A man can be seen running down from a terraced house and the officers can be seen backing off as one points a stun gun at him.

They get the man on the ground on his back.
