The other two suspects, who were arrested on suspicion of affray, have both been released under investigation.

The incident happened after a night which saw Newcastle city centre busy with Halloween revellers.

Workers arriving on the Quayside in the morning found a large area of Lower Dean Street cordoned off by police tape with forensics officers at work gathering evidence.

A woman, who works as a cleaning manager at a restaurant on Dean Street was greeted by the chaos when she arrived for work at around 5am.

She said: “When I came here early there was a police officer here and they wouldn’t let us past and into work

“They told me there had been a ‘serious crime’ but after being here several hours I have established someone has been stabbed.

“I got here just after 5am, but I think the police have been here since 3.30am. The forensics is arrived at about 8.30am."
