A TEENAGER is recovering in hospital after he was stabbed in the legs.

It is believed three people set on him at a property in Chidham Close, Havant, on Tuesday afternoon.

The 18-year-old’s injuries are not life-threatening.

Police are trying to trace three people who were seen leaving the property between 12.30pm and 1.20pm.
