TWO people arrested after a double stabbing have been released on police bail as inquiries continue.

The man and woman were both injured during an incident at the derelict Goose & Timber public house in Christchurch on Sunday afternoon.

Police said they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the stabbings at the pub in Barrack Road.

The man and woman, both in their 40s, were taken to hospital on Sunday and arrested on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent. They are known to each other.

The woman was released from hospital yesterday but the man is still undergoing treatment. His injuries are described as serious but not life-threatening.

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.

Searches of the immediate area were carried out.
