Emergency services were called on Saturday shortly before midnight to reports of a fight involving a group of boys near the junction of Cox Hill and Brook Hall Road.

He remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

Officers arrested a teenage boy in connection with the incident shortly after, but was later released under investigation while enquiries continue.
