Following reports of an alleged stabbing, emergency services have been called to The Silver City Hotel on Pelham Road, Immingham.

Police officers and ambulance crews were called to The Silver City Hotel on Pelham Road at around 10.10am today. All those in attendance were seen wearing gloves and mask to protect them from contracting Covid-19.
