Three people suffered injuries after being stabbed during Swedish House Mafia's show in Milton Keynes on Saturday (July 14).

The gig, which took place at Milton Keynes Bowl, was marred by three incidents in which two 23-year old men and one 24-year old man were stabbed.

According to Thames Valley Police, a 23-year-old man from the West Midlands area is currently in Milton Keynes General Hospital and is being treated for a punctured lung.

Another, a 24-year-old man from the West Midlands, received a cut to his head and arm but has been discharged from hospital. Another 23-year old man was treated for minor injuries onsite by St John's Ambulance.

Speaking about the incident, Detective Chief Inspector Justin Fletcher said: "This appears to have been an isolated incident, and overall we are very pleased with how the event passed off, but we would like to trace the person responsible for this assault."

Police have also said that they are keen to speak to a man who is described as white, aged in his early 20s, wearing a blue Nike T-shirt, a black jacket and black jogging bottoms, in connection with the assault.

A police spokesman said: "Anyone who witnessed the incident, particularly if they captured it on their camera or mobile phone, is requested to contact the police."

During the concert, three people were also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class-A drugs. They are a 19-year-old man from Liverpool, a 26-year-old man from London, and a 37-year-old man from Ipswich.

This is the second time in a week that a Swedish House Mafia show has been marred by stabbings. Nine people suffered injuries after being stabbed during their show in Dublin last Saturday (July 7) and a man passed away after a drug overdose.

Swedish House Mafia are currently completing their farewell tour.
