A TEENAGER is believed to have been stabbed during an attack on a notorious estate where residents say they are terrified to walk at night.

Neighbours said the attack saw the 17-year-old set upon by five people and stabbed, although police said it was unclear exactly how his injuries were received.

The youth remained in hospital with non life-threatening injuries on Tuesday.

The attack comes amid residents' claims of drug dealing, dumped cars and people too frightened to give statements to the police.
