Three men have been arrested after a 16-year-old girl was killed in a gun and knife attack in a town park.

Another girl is in a serious condition in hospital after the "horrendous" attack in the early hours of Saturday in the area of Prospect Park, Reading.

The three men, who are all from London and aged in their 20s, were arrested early on Saturday morning.

Officers say they are keeping an open mind on any motive and would not say if the men were known to the girls.

Det Supt Mark Warwick

The second victim, who is 18, is a friend of the dead girl. She asked for help from a passer-by close to the park at about 0530 BST.

Officers then found the body of the dead girl in the park.

The 18-year-old is in a "serious but stable" condition. Her injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Det Supt Mark Warwick, senior investigating officer, told reporters that both victims suffered a "knife and firearm attack" but declined to give further information.

He said: "Firstly I must express my deepest sympathy to the family of the young girl who tragically died this morning.

"We are trying to piece together exactly what happened and would urge anyone who saw what happened or who has information to come forward immediately.

"This is a rare and terrible crime and we need your help to find out who is responsible."

A large area of the park centred on a playground and tennis court has been sealed off, with a white tent close to an area of woodland.

A police cordon extends several hundred metres away to a pub called the Mansion House. Officers took CCTV footage from the pub, its deputy manager said. A post-mortem examination on the dead girl has yet to be carried out.

walk? me? :o

but when i was younger i always used to play in the playground. and i had one of my birthday parties at the Mansion House when i was like 5 or 6 maybe. its horrible that someone could murder someone, but especially in a place like that. i mean its a saturday and the sun is out, all the kids will wanna go to the park. i hate the culture England is slipping into. the murderer(s) could even have walked past my house.
