A 20-year-old man is in hospital after being stabbed in Wisbech.

The man suffered what police described as potentially life-threatening injuries after being attacked in a field near Wisbech Rugby Club, in Chapel Road, between 9.30pm and 10.30pm on Friday.

He remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

Detectives are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident to call police.

The offender is described as Polish, white, blond, in his early 20s with a tattoo on his right forearm. He was wearing black clothing and made off on a dark red bicycle.
