A man is fighting for his life in hospital after being stabbed in a nursing home car park following an argument.

Greater Manchester Police said the 37-year-old victim was seriously injured outside the Royal Elms nursing home on Windsor Road, Newton Heath.

Two men, aged 51 and 24, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following the incident, at around 10.45pm yesterday.

A force spokesman said there was nothing to suggest the victim was a member of staff at the nursing home, or that he was a visitor to the site.

The victim remains in a critical condition.

Detective Inspector Mark Tootill said: "From what we understand, there has been a disagreement in the car park of the nursing home which has led to this man being critically injured.

"Due to his injuries, we have not been able to speak to the victim at this time.

"Although two arrests have been made, I am still keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed what happened, and would ask anyone who has, to please call us as soon as possible."

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

A Manchester City Council spokesman said neither staff nor residents at the nursing home were involved in the incident.
