A WOMAN injured in a double stabbing at a boarded-up pub has been released from hospital.

She was hurt in an incident at the Goose & Timber in Christchurch which also left a man with serious injuries. He remains in hospital.

Both of them were arrested on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent and officers said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

Police were called at 3.23pm on Sunday when the ambulance service reported that a man and a woman had been found with injuries in Bargates.

The air ambulance landed on playing fields opposite the pub, which is next to the former Christchurch police station and near the Fountain roundabout.

A land ambulance and four police cars were parked at the back of the building and a uniformed officer was standing at the rear gate of the pub.

Officers were seen to leave the building with evidence bags and others, wearing protective gloves, were seen searching the surrounding area.

Police looked in bushes and searched around a recycling station.
