POLICE have taped off access to a line of shops on a Southampton road.

Officers are currently at St Mary Street where a cordon has been put in place.

A video has also emerged on social media of a large group of people fighting in the same area before 10pm last night.

Daily Echo:

It blocks off Ascupart Street and follows along the road up to My Supermarket convenience store.

Witness Mikkel Dyrup told Daily Echo reporter Celine Byford at the scene: "I watched it from my window. I have so many videos from my window that I'm not surprised anymore, but it is scary.

"Looks like the people from the wedding had a fight with the young gangsters of St Marys."

While John Wheeler, the owner of J.H. Bigland which sits behind the cordon, said it's his first day back since lockdown.

He said: "I don't know what's going on but I've been told by police that officers will be examining the area. I can only get into my bakery via the back."

One person walking by said: "The police won't tell us anything."

While another said: "This place has gone downhill over the years."

Daily Echo:

One nearby resident said: "I think there was a stabbing. My brother told me.

"My house is right there as well so it's quite scary."

Daily Echo:

Another said: "It was probably a stabbing."
