Two men have been charged with attempted murder after a man was stabbed in a street attack.

Officers were called to Arleston in Telford at about 23:46 BST on Thursday to reports of a fight in Woollam Road.

A 32-year-old man who was stabbed in the chest is in a stable condition in hospital.

Shaquil Sheamus Sultan, 19, and Mohammed Kabir Zaman, 27, are due before the town's magistrates on Monday, West Mercia Police said.
