A 16-year-old girl was accidentally stabbed in the leg at a teenage disco last night, the Irish Daily Star is reporting. 

The incident occurred at Attitude, an under-18s disco held at the Wright Venue in Swords. It's believed that the girl was stabbed when she hugged a boy who had taken a knife into the venue. 

She is believed to know the boy and the Gardaí are treating the incident as a freak accident. A spokesman confirmed that a boy was arrested and released without charge.
