A 16-year-old boy from Slough was arrested today in connection with an attack in Station Road, Langley on Wednesday in which a 17-year-old was stabbed.

The victim remains in hospital.

The Section 60 stop and search order imposed in Langley on Wednesday has now been lifted.

It was put in place after the stabbing which happened at around 3.30pm that afternoon.

The stop and search order was enacted from 6.20pm on Wednesday and ended at 10am today.

But a dispersal order has now been authorised and is in place between 1pm and 7pm today covering the area of Langley

Local Policing Area Commander for Slough, Superintendent Gavin Wong, said: “We have now taken the decision to lift this Section 60 order, but this will be replaced with a dispersal order which allows police to direct people to leave the area if they suspect it is necessary to reduce the likelihood of crime or disorder.

“There will continue to be an increased police presence in the area which I hope will reassure the local community.

“Although the Section 60 has now ceased, police officers will still be able to apply their ordinary stop and search powers, requiring police officers to have reasonable grounds to carry out a search where they think someone may be in possession of a weapon, controlled drugs or a tool that could be used to commit crime.

“I would like to offer my thanks the local community that were affected by this order and assure them that we will continue to listen to local concerns and act accordingly to keep our communities safe.”

A 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy, both from Hayes who were arrested earlier in connection with Wednesday's incident have been released on bail.
