Two men were seriously injured in a street fight which police are treating as attempted murder.

The fight broke out in the Ketley Bank area of Telford, Shropshire, on Friday evening.

A 20-year-old man suffered a serious face injury and a 40-year-old man was treated for a slash wound in the incident.

Two men, aged 21 and 18, have since been arrested for attempted murder and violent disorder.

A third man, aged 37, has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

The injured men remain in hospital.
