A French tourist was stabbed in the throat and stomach when he asked children to turn down their music at a hotel opposite Windsor Castle early yesterday.

The man, 53, from Strasbourg, was staying at the Castle Hotel when he asked three children in the neighbouring bedroom to lower the volume about 1.30am. He was stabbed in the throat and abdomen, puncturing two vital organs, police said. He underwent surgery at Wexham Park Hospital, Slough, and was said to be stable last night.

The man's wife raised the alarm when she found him lying injured. She and their daughter have been moved to another hotel nearby.

It is believed the children's' parents were downstairs in the hotel lounge at the time of the stabbing. A man aged 34 and a boy, aged 16, from Surrey have been arrested in connection with the attack.
