Inspector Matthew Harvey, of GMP’s Trafford district, said: “Officers have moved swiftly to make an arrest and the suspect is being questioned in custody. Our enquiries are continuing and we will have extra officers in the area tonight and over the weekend.

“Knife crime can have devastating consequences and the public want to see police officers challenging those causing the issues. I want to reassure the community that we are continuing to work closely with our partner agencies to ensure we keep Trafford, and the wider Greater Manchester community , safe and free from harm.

“I would urge anyone who suspects someone is carrying a weapon or is involved in criminal behaviour, to report it to us or to contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”

GMP added in a statement: “As part of our #ForeverAmnesty campaign to ‘bin the knife’ we remind the public that there is at least one amnesty bin at a police station in each Greater Manchester district. There are 13 amnesty bins permanently located across Greater Manchester where you can anonymously deposit a knife – find out more here Forever Amnesty | Greater Manchester Police (gmp.police.uk)”
