THREE people were treated for stab wounds after a fight broke out during Swedish House Mafia’s concert at the National Bowl on Saturday.

At around 6.15pm, before the headliners hit the stage, a fight broke out in the main arena where the three received their injuries.

One, a 23-year-old man from the West Midlands area, remains in Milton Keynes Hospital with a punctured lung.

Another, a 24-year-old man, also from the West Midlands, received a cut to his head and arm but has since been discharged from hospital, and a 23-year old man was treated for minor injuries by St John Ambulance.

Det Ch Insp Justin Fletcher said: “This appears to have been an isolated incident, and overall we are very pleased with how the event passed off, but we would like to trace the person responsible for this assault.”

During the concert, three people were also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs. They are a 19-year-old man from Liverpool, a 26-year-old man from London, and a 37-year-old man from Ipswich.

The incident comes after nine were stabbed in Dublin as they waited for the Swedish trio to perform on Saturday July 7.
