All three suspects have been bailed with conditions as enquiries continue.

Inspector Andy Wilson, of Nottinghamshire police, said: “It should go without saying but carrying a knife is very dangerous and there is never an excuse to have one in your possession in a public place.

“We take all reports of knife crime extremely seriously and will continue to act quickly to resolve any incidents involving knives in a safe manner.

“I would urge anyone with any additonal information about this incident – or about anyone else who may be in possession of a knife – to call us on 101, quoting number 516 of 12 March 2022.”
