A TEENAGER injured in a suspected stab incident in Darlington on Wednesday is expected to make a full recovery, police have said.

But officers want to speak to a middle-aged man who they believe is involved.

The injured teen, a 16-year-old, was taken to Darlington Memorial Hospital for treatment following the incident in an alley between Yarm Road and King William Street at about 3.30pm on Wednesday afternoon.

However there was a heavy police presence at Darlington's Bank Top Station at about 4pm, where the injured person received initial treatment there before being taken to hospital by ambulance.
