One teenager dead, one in intensive care after double-stabbing in picturesque Yorkshire village

A Scottish teenager was knifed to death by strangers in a frenzied street attack while enjoying a night out with a pal in a picturesque Yorkshire village, detectives revealed last night.

The murdered 19-year-old’s friend, aged 18, survived the double stabbing and expected to live after undergoing emergency surgery yesterday.

Police said the pals from Renfrewshire, near Paisley, were returning to a relative’s house when they were set on in Marsden, near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

The older boy collapsed after suffering multiple knife wounds in 'a confrontation' with attackers who were probably strangers to the victims.

Det Supt Paul Taylor said more than two people may have been involved in the double stabbing.

They were looking for at least one knife and possibly more. The area has been cordoned off.

Murder squad detectives are conducting house to house inquiries and studying CCTV footage.

The surviving teenager was still conscious and able to blurt out a few words to police alerted by paramedics to the scene. Read More
