Shrewsbury stabbings: Station car park still closed as two suspects released
Four men remain in custody after a double stabbing outside the Buttermarket nightclub.
The main Shrewsbury Railway Station car park remains closed today as police continue to investigate a double stabbing.
The Howards Bank Car Park behind the station has been sealed off since two men were stabbed in the early hours of New Year's Day.
The injured men, aged 21 and 18, were both rushed to hospital in the wake of the attacks, with the older victim's condition described as 'serious but stable'.
One of the men was stabbed outside the Buttermarket nightclub at around 3.20am, before the second was stabbed in the car park next door.
Several police vehicles were today parked at the entrance to the car park, directly next to the Buttermarket and opposite the train station, while officers continued to search the area.
The 190-space NCP car park is the official Arriva Trains Wales car park for the station and means workers and commuters were left with nowhere to park on Tuesday morning.
Detective Inspector Scott Harris, from West Mercia Police, said: "We have closed Howards Bank Car Park while investigations continue into disturbances near to the Buttermarket and the car park yesterday and it will remain closed for some time today.
"We thank the public for their patience and we hope people understand the need to carry out a thorough investigation."
The early-hours attacks were the beginning of a violent 24 hours in Shropshire, which saw three more men stabbed before New Year's Day was over.
A 50-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of wounding after the Telford incident, while a man in his 50s was arrested at the scene in Hereford Road, Shrewsbury, on suspicion of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Anyone with information regarding any of the stabbings should contact police on 101.
