    Girl fighting for life after being stabbed in Liverpool city centre ‘argument with boys’

    A girl is fighting for her life after being stabbed in Liverpool city centre earlier this evening.

    Merseyside Police raced to the scene following reports of a stabbing at about 8.39pm tonight near the busy shopping street.

    Police say the victim was believed to have been with friends and there was a "verbal argument" with a group of boys, LiverpoolECHO reports.

    One of the boys is believed to have assaulted the victim.

    The group of boys then ran off, officers said.

    The victim was rushed to the hospital where she is being treated and her condition is described as critical.
