TWO girls were rushed to hospital with serious injuries after a brutal stabbing.

Yesterday [Wednesday], a gang of teenagers got into a row on a field near Rivermead Leisure Complex in Reading when one of the group drew a blade.

A 13-year-old girl had a knife plunged into her stomach before a 14-year-old girl was stabbed in the shoulder and the leg.

It was believed the terrifying incident was captured on film and investigating police officers have urged anyone who has the footage not to share it online.
