TWO people have been released on police bail after being arrested in connection with a fight in Ipswich, which left a man suffering serious injuries.
The 40-year-old man and 37-year-old woman were arrested and questioned by officers after the attack in a car park in Cromwell Square.
Police were called to the busy town centre area at 9pm on Saturday and found the 35-year-old man seriously injured.
The man, who has not been named by police, was taken to Ipswich Hospital in a critical condition but was later transferred to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge where he was said to be fighting for his life.
He is still being cared for in hospital but his condition has now improved to stable.
Saturday's incident is the latest to leave someone seriously injured in Ipswich - a trend which has caused concern in the town.

Borough council leader Peter Gardiner said: "Of course violence concerns everybody in the town in which you live.
"We've been working with the clubs and the police and others in terms of putting more funding into CCTV and we've also been purchasing mobile cameras that the police can use around the town.
"Ipswich has had a very good CCTV system for a very long time and obviously now we need to try and progress that to cover more and more of the spots that come up.
"In fact now, if something like a club or bar opens, we ask them to provide their own CCTV cameras."
Police are continuing their investigation into the attack and they are appealing for witnesses to contact officers on 01473 613500.
