Messerangriff in Reading: Three people dead after Forbury Gardens attack
Reading stabbings: Three people dead after Forbury Gardens attack

Three people have died and three more have been seriously injured after stabbings in a park in Reading, police confirmed.
A 25-year-old man from Reading has been arrested on suspicion of murder after being detained at the scene.
The attack happened at Forbury Gardens at about 19:00 BST where several people were stabbed.
Police are not currently treating the incident as terror-related, but counter terrorism officers were called.
Security sources have told the BBC a man arrested at the scene is thought to be Libyan.
Home affairs correspondent Daniel Sandford said he had been told the man had previously been in prison in the UK for a relatively minor conviction, not a terrorism offence. One eyewitness told the BBC how he saw a man moving between groups of people in the park, trying to stab them.
There were reports a police officer had "rugby tackled" the suspect to the ground, according to the Sunday Mirror.

Det Chf Supt Ian Hunter, from Thames Valley Police, said police were not looking for any other people in connection with the attack, adding that officers were "keeping an open mind as to the motivation for the incident".
Police have asked anyone with mobile phone footage of the attack to come forward and people have been urged not to share videos and photos online "out of respect for the victims' families".

Thames Valley Police said the incident was not connected to an earlier Black Lives Matter (BLM) protest in the park.
At 20:00 BST, officers arrived at a block of flats in Basingstoke Road in Reading and secured the scene, leaving residents waiting outside.
More than a dozen armed police officers carrying shields were seen entering the block at about 23:00 BST.
BBC News Home Affairs correspondent Dominic Casciani, who was outside the block of flats, said he heard a loud bang at the scene about an hour and a half later, after which several armed officers left.
