Five arrested following Skegness attempted murder

Five men in Skegness have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Police were called to an address on South Parade in the town at around 4:30pm on Saturday where they found two injured men, aged 18 and 23.

Both were taken to hospital where one was later discharged, but the other is in a critical condition.

The five men were arrested after a silver Ford Focus, believed to have been connected with the attempted murder was stopped on the A16 at Ulceby Cross.

The Senior Investigating Officer DCI David Rimmer said:

This was a brutal attack for which the motives are currently unclear. Although we have arrested suspects I am appealing for anyone who may have witnessed anything that may be connected to this incident either on South Parade, Skegness or on the A16 yesterday in the late afternoon.
