A man who was found on a road with his penis cut off has regained consciousness.
The 40-year-old had been in an induced coma in James Cook University Hospital after being found in a distressed state on the A66 near South Bank, Middlesbrough at 4.50 am on Thursday.
Cleveland Police say they hope to be able to speak to him about what happened over the weekend.
It is still unclear whether the police found the man's appendage after they closed the road to search for it.
A 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault in relation to the incident and was released on bail.
