A row broke out between two employees - in which one of them was stabbed repeatedly - in one of Manchester city centre's busiest department stores.

The injured 40-year-old was attacked in House of Fraser's menswear section on Deansgate on Wednesday afternoon.

He underwent surgery overnight after suffering knife wounds to his back, neck and chest.

A 20-year-old, arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, remains in police custody.

'Utmost seriousness'

The 40-year-old's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, police said.

Greater Manchester Police received reports of the knife attack at 1530 BST.

"Officers attended the scene and found that a man had wounds to his back, neck and chest," said a spokesman.

"He has been taken to hospital for treatment."

The popular store is located in one of the busiest shopping areas in the city.

A House of Fraser spokesman said: "We are doing everything we can to ensure the wellbeing of our staff and customers.

"We are treating the situation with the utmost seriousness and are working closely with the police who are investigating the incident."
