A police spokeswoman confirmed there had been an incident in the area of the shops on Ellenbrook Road - but no further details are being released at this stage. 

She said: "A male has been injured and taken to hospital but we don't know the extent of the injuries at the moment. 

"No-one has been arrested but there is a crime scene on at the moment.

"If anyone has any information we'd ask them to call 101 quoting CAD 357."

A member of staff at the Ellenbrook Green Londis said: "I didn't see anything but I heard, like, fighting noises. I was just in the shop serving customers — I thought it was all normal.

"Then there were blue lights all over the place and I realised something was going on. They've taped off the car park and one road."
