Major incident in Birmingham, UK centre after multiple stabbings, police say”

United Kingdom police have declared a "major incident" after officers were called to multiple stabbings in Birmingham's city centre.

"We can confirm that at approximately 12:30am today [Sunday], we were called to reports of a stabbing in Birmingham city centre", West Midlands Police said in a statement.

"This has been declared a major incident".

In a statement police say it's too early to confirm how many people have been injured or what injuries have been suffered and the seriousness of them but say they're working together with emergency services to ensure everyone gets the care that they need.

'At this early stage it would not be appropriate to speculate on the causes of the incident'.

"Work is still going on to establish what has happened".

"The emergency services have well-rehearsed plans for dealing with major incidents". Cordons are in place, and there are some road closures.

"Your safety is our priority".

Police have cordoned off the area.

Featuring an open air central piazza, it is close to the city's Chinese Quarter and Gay Village areas.

A witness, Cara, told 5 Live she had heard racial slurs during the incident, adding that it was a "multicultural night" in the clubs near the Arcadian Centre. People are being asked to stay away from Birmingham city center and to remain calm but vigilant.
