Richard Campbell, 32, has been charged on suspicion of attempted murder after a stabbing in Hitchin two weekends ago.

Campbell, of Downberry Road, Bromley was arrested on Tuesday and charged on Thursday.

A man in his 30s was left in a critical condition with life-threatening injuries – and still remains in hospital – after he was stabbed at the junction of Fishponds Road and Bunyan Road around 2am on Saturday, October 22.

The men are believed to have been known to each other.

They were all arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and have been released on bail.

They are due to return to Stevenage Police Station in mid-December.
