The victim of an apparent stabbing in Hitchin last night is now in a ‘critical but stable’ condition in hospital, a police spokesman has said.

The man in his 30s was taken to hospital with what police initially called ‘life-threatening’ stab wounds following a serious assault in Fishponds Road shortly before 2am this morning.

No arrests have yet been made. A cordon remains in place by the corner with Bunyan Road, and officers are advising members of the public to avoid the area.

Det Insp Tom Leeks said earlier: “Officers are working hard to establish exactly what has happened in the early hours of this morning, and enquiries are ongoing to locate the offender or offenders.”

Anyone with information that could help the investigation should contact police on 101.
