AN IPSWICH man is on bail today after being arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
The 23-year-old was questioned by detectives in connection with an attack which occurred in a car park in West End Road opposite the crown court building and at the rear of Zest nightclub.
Police were called to the car park around 4.50am on Christmas Eve where they found a man who had sustained serious head injuries.
Paramedics treated the injured man at the scene before taking him to Ipswich Hospital for further treatment.
He remained at the hospital over Christmas and was described at the time as being critically ill.
Although it is believed his condition has improved, the 27-year-old - who is from London, was still being treated at the Heath Road hospital over the New Year.

Detectives arrested the 23-year-old suspect on Christmas Eve and took him to Ipswich police station for questioning.
He was subsequently released on bail and must now return to the station on Wednesday, January 25, pending further inquiries by officers.
Initial reports suggested the injured man had been the victim of a robbery.
A large part of the car park was cordoned off for several hours following the incident, with two traffic wardens and a community support officer protecting the site while they waited for scenes-of-crime specialists to arrive.
