Two youths have been bailed in connection with a “vicious attack” on two men who had been out at a Spalding nightclub.

The men, both Lithuanian, were attacked in Double Street before 3am on Sunday and one of them was taken to hospital with serious head injuries.

Two youths from the Spalding area, aged 17 and 19, were arrested shortly afterwards and have been bailed pending further enquiries.

One of the injured men was taken to Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, then transferred to Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham, for further treatment.

Insp Jim Tyner, community policing inspector for Spalding, said: “This was a vicious attack on two young Lithuanian men who had been visiting a local nightclub.

“Thankfully, the condition of the victim with the head injury has improved and he is now talking to detectives.”
