Det Insp John Charlton, of Huddersfield CID, said: “We’re treating this as attempted murder. There’s been a disagreement between a group of males when they were in Otso Bar which has spilled into the street.

“There’s been a fight and the two victims have been assaulted with knives. The men involved were known to each other so it is not a random attack.”
