"Hopefully no one is badly hurt, because you always think the worst when you see so many police."

Detective Chief Inspector Richard Bull, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are still at the very early stages of our investigation and our thoughts at this time are with the victim and his family, who have been contacted.

“We are working hard to understand what happened but do believe this to be an isolated incident.”
