POLICE were today trawling through CCTV footage after the stabbing of a Fylde soldier.
The 21-year-old serviceman was attacked in Blackpool town centre in the early hours of yesterday.
And police are now trying to piece together what happened before the young soldier was found outside a takeaway, close to The Syndicate nightclub on Church Street.
Officers have revealed the victim, who is stationed at Weeton Barracks, near Kirkham, is believed to have been stabbed somewhere between Talbot Road and St John’s Square.
They are now scouring CCTV footage for clues, as they wait to speak to the soldier who remains in a “poorly but stable” condition in Blackpool Victoria Hospital.
