Blood ebbed from the steps found a pub and behind it following a stabbing in Wisbech on Friday night. Even the pavement cellar hatch oozed blood as Cambridgeshire Police continued to investigate what happened outside The Globe public house in the town centre.
Throughout the day the pub, neighouring café/restaurant Terrys, a newsagent around the corner and even a nearby tanning shop closed for the day as a large area in and around the market area was taped off by police.
