A landlady came to the aid of a boy who walked into her Stockwood pub saying ‘call an ambulance, I’ve been stabbed’.

Hayley Lip, landlady of the Harvesters in Harrington Road for 23 years, quickly responded to the boy’s plea when he entered the establishment soon after 9pm this evening (April 23).

While one of the four customers inside called 999, she gave him two Thatchers cider mats and told him to apply them to the bleeding wound on his leg. The boy had a second wound on his waist - but this wasn’t bleeding.

Ms Lip told BristolWorld: “Four police cars and ambulance crews arrived within 10 minutes to help the boy, who was now outside with several of his concerned friends.”

Ms Lip said she was told the boy had been attacked at the nearby bike park - this is not yet confirmed by Avon and Somerset Police.

The boy was taken to hospital in an ambulance, and police stayed on to check CCTV at the pub.
