FRIEND: Hello is this the police?
POLICE: This is the police. How can I help?
FRIEND: Hiya, my friend's been in an incident. He's got mental health issues. He said he stabbed someone and has turned up outside my house. We're currently in Whitburn Park car park. He's got blood all over him and he's cut himself a lot.
POLICE: He's turned up at your address saying he's stabbed someone and then...
FRIEND: He's turned up outside my house with the blood all over him. I thought he'd got into a street fight or something so I said 'come out, we'll go for a walk and talk about it on the walk' and he's explained the whole situation. I know where everything is and what's happened.
POLICE: So where has the original incident happened?
FRIEND: It happened in One Stop on Fulwell Road (Sea Road).
