A girl aged seven has died after she was attacked in a busy park.

A woman in her 30s has been arrested after the horror incident in Queen's Park near Bolton, report Manchester Evening News.

Eye witnesses say they saw the victim being given CPR as two adults stood "covered in blood" nearby

The girl is said to have been attacked by two women who then ran off across the park.

Police confirmed they are dealing with an incident.

Emergency services were called to park on Sunday afternoon and there were reports that an Air Ambulance helicopter also attended the scene.

Several police cars could be seen parked outside and entrances to the park have been cordoned off.

Eye witness Kyra Coop said: She said: “We were sat on the benches near the railings when we saw two police officers running across the park as fast as they could.

”Then we saw the big ambulance hovering over and landing. You know when you see that it is something serious.

”Then a girl ran over and said a little girl had been stabbed.

The police started coming round and asking everyone to leave, and that’s what we did.

”It left us really shaken up.

“We had to reassure the kids as they were really upset.”
