A third teenager has been arrested over an attack that left a Watford football fan critically ill after a match in Wolverhampton.

The 18-year-old, of Fallings Park, Wolverhampton, was detained earlier over the attack on Nick Cruwys.

Mr Cruwys, 44, suffered head injuries in the assault in Littles Lane on Saturday, and remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital.

An 18-year-old and a 13-year-old have been bailed, police said.

West Midlands Police said father-of-two Mr Cruwys, of Hemel Hempstead, was with a group of friends when he was assaulted.

Det Insp Toni Naylor made a further appeal for anyone who could help with the inquiry to contact them.
