A MAN has been arrested after the air ambulance attended the scene of a “serious assault” in Porton.

Police say they were called to an address in Southbourne Way, shortly after 10am this morning (Tuesday).

They were responding to a "disorder" inside the property.

A man in his 40s was said to have been injured, requiring the air ambulance to be called and land in the area.

A 26-year-old man was later arrested in connection with the incident and has been detained by police.

Officers say there will be a continued presence in the area, but the situation has been contained and there is no risk to the wider public.
