A 50-year-old man has today been sentenced to a hospital order for attempting to murder his 29-year-old son.
Around 6pm on 28 November 2021 following a 999 call, officers attended Cog Lane, Burnley where they were met by Andrew Heaton who told them that he had stabbed his son.
His son was found lying on the sofa, with a wound to his chest. Police and paramedics gave first aid at the scene and he was later transferred to hospital.
An officer recovered a large kitchen knife with a 12 inch blade from the bottom of the stairs.
