“The woman was sitting up on the kerb – she looked OK – the man was laying down but then he got up. But I just can’t believe he was able to get up.”

Details about the third injured person have not been released.

Lynn Haggitt, who witnessed the van driving into two people on Milton Street, stated that she saw the driver look in his mirror, notice a police car behind him, and then accelerate before driving “straight into” the victims. She said, “The woman went on the kerb and the man went up in the air. It was such a bang – I wish I never saw it – it’s really shaken me up.”

Another eyewitness, who chose to remain anonymous, reported seeing a young man and young woman stabbed on Ilkeston Road around 4am. He described the attacker as a “guy dressed all in black with a hood and rucksack grappling with some people. It was a girl, and a man or boy she was with – they looked quite young.” The witness recalled hearing the woman scream for help and watched as the attacker stabbed the male victim first, followed by the woman. The witness called emergency services, and police arrived within five minutes, with paramedics spending 40 minutes attempting to revive the pair.
