Two children have been seriously injured in a stabbing in Hampshire.

A man has been arrested in connection with the stabbing, which happened near the junction of Southleigh Road with Eastleigh Road.
Hampshire Police has not released any further details about the arrest but said no-one else was being sought.
One of the children was taken to the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth and the other to Southampton General Hospital.
The force said it was in the “very early stages” of the investigation and was “piecing together exactly what has happened”.
Officers are appealing for witnesses and said there would be patrols of the area.
A cordon has been put in place at the scene and there is a road closure at the Horndean Road end of Southleigh Road to allow police vehicles access to the area.
