A man has died after being stabbed on board a tram.
At around 11.10 a.m. on Monday, the victim, a man in his 30s, was attacked in Basford, a town to the north of Nottingham, close to the Highbury Vale tram stop.
According to a statement made by Nottinghamshire Police on Monday afternoon, a man has been detained on suspicion of murder and is still in police custody.
While investigations are ongoing, a police cordon is still in place.
Nottinghamshire Police Chief Constable Kate Meynell said: “What happened at Highbury Vale this morning is tragic and has resulted in the death of a man in his 30s.
“We know there were other passengers on board at the time and understand how frightening this must have been for anyone who saw what happened.
“Our officers were at the scene quickly and detained a suspect. He remains in police custody.
“This was an isolated incident and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with what happened this morning.”
A spokesman for East Midlands Ambulance Service said: “We received a call at 11.11am on 26 June to Highbury Vale tram stop in Basford. The caller reported a medical emergency.
“We sent two paramedics in fast response cars and two crewed ambulances. The air ambulance was also in attendance.”
The event occurred over two weeks after a series of attacks in Nottingham’s city centre claimed the lives of three individuals.
On June 13, two 19-year-old students, Barnaby Webber and Grace O’Malley-Kumar, as well as school maintenance worker Ian Coates, age 65, were fatally stabbed.
