A second male who was arrested in connection with the incident - whose age has not been revealed by police - has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

Officers were called after they received reports of a man stumbling outside an address close to the Mill Lane-Nene Way junction shortly before 4am on Tuesday, 20 June.

The 30-year-old victim had suffered multiple stab wounds to the chest, back and abdomen and was taken by paramedics to Northampton General Hospital. His condition remained serious last night.
