A sixth man has been charged after a mass confrontation in Liverpool city centre led to a stabbing.

21-year-old Anthony Dodson was rushed to hospital after being knifed in the chest during the 'large-scale disturbance' in the early hours of December 27. He was found at the junction of Church Street and Whitechapel, near to McDonald's, by a police patrol at around 5.30am. He remains in hospital in a critical but stable condition.

A second male, aged 21, who was stabbed in the back following what witnesses described as a 'mass brawl' involving two groups that left The Safehouse bar on Victoria Street and entered Peter Street, is also stable and recovering at home.
