Two teenagers have been charged after a stabbing at a railway station which saw a man taken to hospital.

The boys, aged 17 and 15, were arrested after the attack at Manchester Victoria last Friday.

British Transport Police said the pair were both accused of causing grievous bodily harm and possessing a bladed article.

They have appeared at Manchester Youth Court and continue to be held in custody.

The pair, both from the Manchester area, have not been named due to their age.

Officers were called to the stabbing at about 21:15 GMT.

The injured man was later discharged from hospital after treatment, British Transport Police added.
