A residential road was cordoned off by police after a man was hurt in an attack at his home.

Police rushed to a quiet residential road at just before 5.30pm yesterday (Thursday) after a man was attacked.

Part of Eldefield in Letchworth GC was cordoned off as officers, some of them armed, began an investigation.

The victim, who is in his late 30s, was taken to hospital for treatment to an injury to his back. Police described his condition as “stable”.
