The Guardian is reporting that a parent has been stabbed outside the gates of a primary school after an apparent row broke out over parking…

He was seen arguing with a man and a woman as parents waited to collect their children from North Walkden primary school in Walkden, Greater Manchester, before he was repeatedly stabbed, police said.

He staggered inside the school to ask for help and was taken by ambulance to Manchester Royal Infirmary with serious stab wounds.

Police said young children were among those who witnessed the stabbing at 3.30pm on Friday.

A search has been launched for the couple after they left the scene in a silver Vauxhall Corsa.

DI Ben Hart said: “This incident has only just happened so we are not going to speculate on exactly what led to the man receiving stab wounds…

“We have spoken to the school and to the local authority and we are all working to support the school, its children and their parents.”

Local residents told the Manchester Evening News that the argument had broken out over parking outside the busy school…

Police said the man is in a stable condition…
