Four people have been arrested over a stabbing at a fast food restaurant that left a 16-year-old boy critically ill.

The attack happened at about 19:30 BST on Wednesday at the McDonald’s in Ravenswood Avenue, Ipswich.

The unidentified teenager was taken to Ipswich Hospital with “life-threatening injuries”.

Suffolk Police said the arrests were made amid “what is still a dynamic situation”. It is the third stabbing in the town in the past two weeks.
