Weekday Cross Knife Incident: Image of woman released by police

Detectives investigating a confrontation where knives were brandished have released an image of a woman they’d like to speak to.

Officers were called to Weekday Cross in Nottingham city centre around 12.30pm on Wednesday (31 January) following reports of violent disorder.

The incident, which happened outside the Nottingham Contemporary art gallery, saw two groups of people confront each other while wielding knives.

Nobody was hurt during the dispute, with everyone involved then fleeing from the area before police arrived.
