A woman has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after two 10-year-old boys were stabbed.

Police visited Fold Hill in Friskney, Lincolnshire, at 14:49 GMT on Tuesday after reports of a concern for safety.

Officers initially spoke with an occupant at the property and then at about 16:30 began negotiating with the woman.

They forced entry to the house at 01:00 on Wednesday, finding the injured boys, and arrested the 39-year-old woman.

The boys were taken to hospital, but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, a Lincolnshire Police spokesperson said.
