A sign on the Arndale this morning

Tonight's violence comes as Manchester attempts to get back to normal after multiple people were stabbed at the Arndale Centre yesterday morning.

There has been an increased security presence around the city centre today as shoppers turned out as normal.

A total of five victims were taken to hospital after the terrifying attack unfolded shortly after 11.15am on Friday morning.

The injuries sustained by the four who were knifed, were described as 'nasty,' but not life threatening by Greater Manchester's deputy mayor Bev Hughes.

One woman required surgery and remains in hospital for treatment. One man was detained under the Mental Health Act following Friday's attack.
