The woman, described by police as in her 50s, was found unconscious at a house in Icknield Way on August 5, and was in a critical condition in hospital afterwards – but has now regained consciousness and is recovering in respite care.

Police launched an attempted murder probe after the incident, arresting a 39-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman on August 6 before releasing them under investigation.

A 57-year-old man was also arrested at the time, but was promptly released with no further action. The other people have now also been released without charge, police today confirmed.

Forensics officers remained at the scene into Monday, August 7, with a police guard in place.
