Man arrested on suspicion of attempted murder

A 23-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following a fight in Littleport on Sunday.

The fight took place at about 12.30pm near the One Stop on Wisbech Road, with a 31-year-old man rushed to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge after suffering serious head injuries.

The Magpas Helimedix air ambulance team also attended the scene and helped treat the 31-year-old, who remains in a serious condition.
