Detectives are still on the scene of the killing at the Main Street / Hardwick Road junction today after a 44-year-old - who we are not naming but is believed to be a local man - was stabbed in the street last night (Friday, June 21).

He was taken to Kettering Hospital before being flown to University Hospital Coventry but medics were unable to save him.

Blood could still be seen on the path this afternoon.

Witnesses also said they heard shouting and saw people running. The emergency services were on the scene within minutes of the stabbing which happened about 8.30pm.
