Cumbrian man at centre of attempted murder probe still critical

A man at the centre of an attempted murder investigation was still in a critical condition today.

Police said two men arrested in connection with an attack on the man had been released on bail as enquiries continued.

A 46-year-old man from Egremont was taken to hospital, after an incident that happened in Central Avenue in the town at about 1.35pm on Sunday.

The two men arrested were aged 57 and 17 and were held on suspicion of attempted murder.

Police stressed on the day of the incident that, despite reports on social media, there were no firearms involved, nor was there any danger to the general public.

The injured man was taken to the West Cumberland Hospital, Whitehaven.

Police continue to appeal for anyone with information about what happened to call 101.
